About Us and the Project

For us, an ecovillage is people living together in a village-like setting, living lightly on the planet, with a commitment to eco-friendly principles. We are working to build a Minnesota ecovillage about an hour or so from the Twin Cities, near either St. Paul or Minneapolis.
