Self-paced online course about the economic context and structure of Earthaven Ecovillage.


Self-paced Online Course

A viable economy is a key component to the success of all ecovillage and residential community projects. Yet, in stark contrast to the predatory, industrial, and highly consumptive nature of our world economic systems, Earthaven looks towards a more elegant, fair-share design for economics that includes right livelihood, living wages, sustainability, cooperation, and village well-being.

Discover the economic structure of our rural Appalachian intentional community, including how we raise funds for capital operating expenses, how the neighborhood coop structure — ownership structures, ownership and fees — and how individual members survive financially. We’re also going to discuss business structures, what we’ve gotten right and wrong, and the future of how we hope to create around money.

You have access to this course for at least one year after purchase.
