Rentals at Earthaven

Rental opportunities at Earthaven are by arrangement with various Earthaven members. The terms are arranged privately between you and the host. Renters are part of Earthaven’s New Roots program, which includes fees, orientations, regular check-ins, and other activities for support and accountability.

Spaces for rent may include a room in a shared home, an apartment, a tiny house, or a natural building. Leases may be long-term or short-term. Renting in the ecovillage is a perfect way to explore possible membership.

Earthaven members expect a lot of themselves and they expect a lot of you too. Earthaven is a working, building, living environment. Your experience may include physical labor as well as administrative contributions, educational opportunities, and social connections. If you are interested in one of these opportunities, please contact the host directly.
