About: We are an earth-friendly community for supporters of ecovillages, green & natural building methods and permaculture as well as economic and political decentralization.
What are ecovillages?: Robert Gilman, in his book, Ecovillages and Sustainable Communities (1991), offers this definition and explanation: An ecovillage is a human-scale, full-featured settlement in which human activities are harmlessly integrated into the natural world in a way that is supportive of healthy human development and can be successfully continued into the indefinite future.
What is permaculture?: Permaculture is an approach to designing human settlements and perennial agricultural systems that mimic the relationships found in the natural ecologies.
