STUDIO RENTAL FOR $600 MONTH AVAILABLE MAY 15TH, 2013! THIS CAN LEAD TO CO-OWNERSHIP. EMAIL FOR DETAILS.
A semi-rural ecovillage-in-the-making on ten acres of beautiful Northern California land, one mile out of the town of Laytonville. Ten acres have been subdivided into four parcels which allows for the development of new green homes and community space. We partner with the Solar Living Institute (solarliving.org) to host workshops in sustainability.
The vision is to create an "intentional neighborhood" where people live in private homes, next to neighbors they want to live with, and with whom they share community gardens and community structures. One of the visions is to create a "net zero energy" community.
Unlike a lot of rural homesteads, we're walking distance from town, which lowers our carbon footprint and allows us to be more self-sufficient. Ten acres offers abundant space for agriculture, housing, and workshop space. Cultural diversity and the arts are priorities. SUMMER CAMPING AND TRAILER/RV SPACES AVAILABLE!!!
Status: Eight adults, two chihuahuas, and two cats.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
