Columbia Ecovillage – From Apartments to Community (part 1)



What if you could turn an apartment complex into a houseful of friends? Joe and Pam Leitch did. They purchased the apartments adjoining their farmhouse in metropolitan Portland, with the vision of creating an intentional community. While retrofitting the apartments to modernize and increase energy efficiency, they met weekly with prospective members to discuss visions and values. As Pam notes, “By the time we moved in, we were bonded…. Nobody moved in as a stranger.”  Episode 231. [columbiaecovillage.org]
