Community description:A community for people interested in ecovillages, green building and permaculture.
Welcome to Ecovillage!


About.
We are an earth-friendly community for supporters of ecovillages, green & natural building methods and permaculture.

What are ecovillages?
Robert Gilman, in his book, Ecovillages and Sustainable Communities, 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.
