Upcoming In-Person Classes

SOIL’s In-Person Classes offer experiential learning in the unique living laboratory of Earthaven Ecovillage. Classes at Earthaven are informed by over 26 years of experience with village life in an intentional community dedicated to sustainability, education and activism.

You’ll have the chance to learn, live, work and laugh alongside our pioneering residents in a biologically diverse forested mountain setting.

Join us for Earthaven Ecovillage Experience Week and really get to know the village and residents with a service learning component as we continue to build infrastructure and realize the Earthaven permaculture vision. A shorter Visitor Weekend is also available.

We also offer in-person and virtual tours of Earthaven Ecovillage.
