Add Your Comment on Bay View Ecovillage
The Bay View Ecovillage is a diverse, urban intentional community focused on social connections and environmental action. Located in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, only blocks from Lake Michigan, we believe quality of life increases as our "footprint" decreases. Representing multiple different decades of experience, we have 11 members living in two duplexes.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
Former/Other Names: BVE, BVEV, BayViewEcovillage
