Peak Moment 231: Columbia Ecovillage (part 2) — Shaping a Life Together



What’s it like, living in an urban ecovillage? Barbara Ford finds that this size community enables people to contribute while doing what they love. Dennis Karas and his wife had to adjust to noise levels with more children around, but enjoy having many friends with shared values. All community members are trained in consensus decision making and conflict resolution, and work on teams for the common good. Noting the contrast with so many breakdowns in our culture, Lisa Weasel values people coming together and working across differences, while downscaling and being sensitive to the environment.
