Awesome! Let's talk sometime on the phone - send us your number in a private message okay :-)
Will do. I'm beginning to compile lists of ecovillages, retreats, organic farms and such throughout Northern California. Most of my contacts are in Humboldt, Mendocino and Del Norte Counties. I have many contacts in the Nevada City area and some other counties that I will use.
Where in Norcal do you have most contacts?
We are in Nevada City but our contacts are all over the US. It would be great to connect and include the intern EcoVillage at the Solar Living Institute...we can contact them. They have a great model there that can be showcased. Do you have Occidental on your list? Hopefully more folks in this group will want to get involved - holidays are always a crazy time to try to connect so we will probably make progress afterward in January. We are really excited about the potential of this endeavor. Thank you for running point on it!
Here's my 2 cents worth: check out the directory at www.cohousing.org = it has a comprehensive list of eco-villages ++ sorted by state.
Looking forward to helping out in the New Year.
Happy Winter Solstice everyone!
We appreciate your contribution but the subject here is creating a core group to launch an EcoVillage Network and although we totally agree with what you said about the burning man waste of human resources and the intriguing right-on conversation you had with your elder friend posting it here was not the best place. Would you mind copy/paste this into the local currency & economy forum discussions so we can delete this one here? We want to stay on subject.
