I’m living in a little village on top of a mountain. It is very pretty, so I thought I would share some of the views.
The ecovillage was founded on ideals of sustainability and community values.
The decisions are reached in consensus.
And there is a lot of focus on green energy and local organic food. Many of the people living here grow their own food and have solar panels to help offset energy costs.
It is also a very safe neighborhood, great for families.
The community houses provide a lot of shared resources that would be impossible to acquire as an individual (like pool tables), and certainly for an itinerant individual like myself.
Residents volunteer a few hours a week to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
I say “my” as if it belongs to me, when in fact I am no more than an ephemeral member. Still, it is a great privilege to belong to this tight knit community, if only for a little while. Besides, I love being able to barter for things with my homemade pies. 😉
