What do you think of ecovillages?


"Ecovillages: A Model Life?"

More people are turning to eco communities as a viable alternative to urban life. Are you nature-starved, lonely, and fed up with the materialism, stress, waste and pollution of modern urban life? If so, rest assured that the craving to live a greener life in a community, more connected to each other and to the Earth is entirely natural. It has a primal appeal.

I think it's a viable idea, but its success or lack thereof would be completely dependent on the specific personalities and agendas coexisting in each ecovillage.

Personally, I'd rather homestead with my own family and not a whole group of people.
