Last week I had the pleasure of connecting with Nebesna Fortier from La Cité Écologique ecovillage in Quebec. I had heard of Cité Écologique during discussion with someone at Twin Oaks, as it is a family friendly ecovillage.
Our discussion centered more around the projects that we are involved in and sharing a little bit of information about the larger groups and networks of ecovillages. It is really awesome to be making these connections with people who are committed to learning and growing community. It makes this website a lot more real and viable.
Connecting with people who are living in the ecovillage world makes that world a whole lot more real too. It’s a difficult integration, living in a world of high competition and division and working to move towards one of cooperation and cohesion. But it’s possible! And it gets closer every day with every new person met.
