Permaculture Design Course - Creating an Eco-village From the Ground Up
Date Monday June 15
Time 12:00 PM - 12:00 PM
Location Details
The course is being held on an emerging Eco-Village development project on a ten acre, beautifully forested property about a mile outside of Laytonville, California. Laytonville is a small, rural town in Northern Mendocino County located right off Highway 101, about a three-hour drive from San Francisco. The property is zoned for subdividing and is in the process of being subdivided into five two-acre parcels that together will consist of the EcoVillage. Existing infrastructure on-site includes a two-story, two-unit farmhouse that’s about 65 years old, a barn with loft, a carport, and storage buildings. The vision of the Ecovillage is to develop the land and homes with community and sustainability as the core values. All of the models of ecological design, permaculture, green building, etc. will be applied to the fullest extent possible. Lots are available to people who agree to a common vision, to community, and to working with a set of guidelines that are developed by the community. Individual lots will thus fit into a “commons” wherein they co-create and agree to a set of sustainable and community parameters.
