Creating an EcoVillage Community – A Virtual Event

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Tony Sirna of Dancing Rabbit EcoVillage speaks on Creating Community and Sustainability

    Enjoy these YouTube clips of Tony Sirna's recent Bay Area talk on your own schedule. Dancing Rabbit does not represent our urban vision of cohousing in San Francisco but it's definitely and interesting model in its own right.

    Making Sustainability a Reality - Part 1

    Making Sustainability a Reality - Part 2

    Tony Sirna is a former Bay Area resident, a Stanford Grad, who, together with a merry band of colleagues, has grown a community of 70 people from-the-ground-up in Missouri. Dancing Rabbit EcoVillage is considered one of the worlds foremost experiments in real-world ecological living and envisions growing into a new-town of 500 residents.

    I'm inspired by Melanie's comment. I am also happy to host. I live in the Richmond district of San Francisco and my deck has a elevated view of the backyards of my neighbors and I. I often look out and imagine the possibilities if we were to remove the fences and start creating a space to bring people together. I also have a large projector screen and seating for about 12 people.

      While we now have Tony here in person, Clay, yours sounds like a great place for another SF coho event. Let's talk about what would be most fun.

    It turns out this doesn't have to be virtual - Tony is relocating to the Bay Area for the next year! We'll work on setting something up.

    let's make it a more-than-virtual event by scheduling a group viewing sometime. We hosted Tony in person in the East Bay and had a blast. Perhaps in April when Within Reach filmmaker Amanda will be in town, she now lives at Dancing Rabbit.

    Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I was last at a Cohousing Event, but things have settled for me and I would love to attend this event. I can definitely attend on a Sunday, perhaps a Friday/Saturday, contingent upon work schedule. Best! Melissa
