We facilitate the creation of and provide extensive resources to helping plant, grow and tend to cocreative intentional communities (ecovillages), rural, urban or otherwise. We want to help open minds to the potential of a slower pace of life, to support parents who are ready to start making changes and provide practical, longer-term real-world solutions to a rapidly changing world.

What a great feeling to be working outdoors!
The tire berm has been completed.
On top the tires we put a row of cans cemented together.
It’s a good idea to get the wires in before getting much farther.
Every step of the way it was a team effort.
Cans have been cemented in.
