People-Care at Earthaven Ecovillage

An Overview of the Social, Emotional, and Relational Aspects of Village Life

Coming soon


Culture at Earthaven Ecovillage is both intentionally and organically created based on both the people who come together and the purpose they hold dear. Examine the invisible infrastructure that binds us to each other, to the land, and to the ecovillage project.

We’ll discuss how we surf our similarities and navigate our differences; the various tools we use to negotiate the joys and challenges of daily life; our diversity of stances on politics, spirituality, and conflict; how we dance with the stages and phases of life (birth, children, marriage, divorce, death); as well as our ongoing awakening regarding issues of race and gender equity.

Explore with us the ups and downs of these central aspects of village life.
