In September 2008, Sundog Ecovillage members purchased 40 acres of beautiful land in Montana, 30 minutes east of Missoula, in the Potomac Valley. There are presently seven founding members, and we are actively seeking additional people of all ages to join us in creating a village-based culture that heals, serves, and celebrates humanity and the planet.
There is an existing house and large shop on the property, and we plan a number of family units. The process for exploring membership, as well as information on costs, is available on our website.
We have worked for over four years to find and buy this property together, and we are excited to say that we have not only bought land, but have the organizational structures and decision-making processes in place for growth and the realization of our dream. We look forward to hearing from you.
