Kailash Ecovillage is a 32-unit apartment complex and a two unit house (using a rental model) in inner southeast Portland, Oregon, with a sustainable orientation. We are creating a community promoting sustainable practices such as extensive recycling, organic (emphasizing veganic approaches) gardening and composting, permaculture, bicycle and public transportation use, vehicle sharing, and rainwater and solar energy harvesting.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
