Create An Eden - NY Eco-Village Pages

I've created an informative page through the Intentional Communities website. It answers some more specifics as to what type of commuity we are looking to form and some more details. Many of the final descisions will be made by YOU, The Group.


Innovate, creative, motivated individuals looking to start off-the-grid sustainable eco-village in Catskills region of Upstate NY focusing on permaculture design principles and green building techniques. Emphasis on individual privacy and community cooperation.

We're looking for land now and getting in touch with future community members at this time. We are looking at land near a larger city or town, between 40-100 acres (or more if possible) mixed meadows and forest, stream. Projected 20-50 individuals or families. Allocation of 1-2 acres per family at for the land to make an individual homestead for growing food and building your home. Size and style of home as well as paying for your home is at your own discretion. Community organization will assist in finding affordable and sustainable housing options. Common land includes meadow shared for animals and orchards ie.

I've looked at other intentional communities and I feel many of them lack natural beauty of design and lack incorporation with the natural environment.

Ground rules will be decided in consensus with community members similar to a co-op community. Depending on the location chosen, houses would be as off-the-grid as possible, using passive solar design, natural building options and permaculture principles without sacraficing too many modern comforts and technology. Members with skills in green building and alternative energy technology are especially appreciated.

The intention is to form a community of like-minded individuals who can offer a diversity of skills and backgrounds to create a society for the modern world. A place where abundant organic food is available, where we can live in harmony with nature as well as be able to reach our potential as human beings.

Looking for land NOW. Be part of the process!
