Join us March 10 to hear about the progress being made by the Ecovillagers Alliance (EVA) toward organizing the world’s first real estate investment cooperative dedicated to establishing ecovillage neighborhoods. EVA's unique vision is based on an exciting new model of how ecovillages can be owned and democratically governed as community land co-ops.

Sunday March 10, Noon to 4:00pm
2 Clerico Lane in Hillsborough

We've all wondered how we can build affordability and participation into our dream of intentional community. Joel Rothschild, a founder of EVA, will report on how the cooperative model is being applied in the development of an ecovillage neighborhood in Lancaster, PA, where he lives.

The Ecovillagers Alliance is a nonprofit coalition of educators, healers, storytellers, and organizers dedicated to cultivating Community Land Co-ops in service to ecovillagers and ecovillage neighborhoods across the US:

Their development model has the potential to revolutionize our movement!

On March 10 we'll begin the day with a pot-luck luncheon, as usual. There's a proposal to break bread after a ritual to encourage an early arrival of spring, so consider bringing a spring food to share:
