Want to get a feel for an ecovillage in your body?
Only have a little bit of time for a visit and you’re on a shoe-string budget?
Join one of our tours! Tours are a great entry point into learning the history, purpose, and development of Earthaven Ecovillage. These tours are designed to provide learners with a deeper understanding about living in community as well as the strategies and solutions possible for doing things another way.
In just a couple of hours, you’ll get a very informative introduction to this 27+ year experimental journey of social, environmental and economic sustainability. You’ll not only learn of things you might want to do, but also what you might NOT want to do.
Would you like a tour but can’t make it to Earthaven? Check out our virtual tours. There’s even a recorded tour you can enjoy right now!
Nothing beats being able to actually walk the land, see the Council hall, tour some dwellings, and enjoy interacting with the residents and teachers at Earthaven.
After registering, you’ll be enrolled for a tour and directed to a page with additional information.
