EarthArt Village is in formation, with the intention to evolve as a model, holistic, sustainable community--living harmoniously with the Earth, sharing resources and responsibilities, and balancing the common good of the group with the wellbeing of each member. The purposes of this cooperative association are to:
1-Own, manage, and maintain land and facilities for the benefit, health, and wellbeing of the residential community and other members;
2-Cultivate lifestyles demonstrating the learning and living of cooperation, simplicity, creative expression, and respect for one another and nature. Honor, steward, protect, and enhance the natural environment;
3-Establish energy efficient, ecologically sound living, learning, working, and playing environments, using sustainable design, methods, and materials;
4-Research, develop, and maintain alternative, off-grid, sustainable infrastructure: common food, energy, water, and waste-management systems;
5-Conduct community endeavors, such as member-managed agriculture and businesses, cooperative purchasing programs, publications, research projects, and artistic and cultural activities; and
6-Provide a living context and example for educational demonstration of sustainable community living--socially, spiritually, economically, and environmentally.
