A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.


At Earthaven Ecovillage, we live and work every day in pursuit of a truly alternative culture, where we strive to provide for our basic needs while centering the health of the Earth and our community. We are dedicated to caring for people and the Earth by learning, living, and demonstrating a holistic, sustainable culture.

As we continue building this living laboratory and sharing what we learn, we are inspired and humbled by your confidence in our work. We are grateful for your support.

Upcoming Events

Virtual Earthaven Tour

Saturday, April 22 @ 2 – 4 pm ET

There’s nothing like experiencing ecovillage life first hand, but taking a virtual tour of Earthaven is a close second! 

The tour highlights ways in which Earthaven is striving to be a holistic, sustainable culture. The introductory overview tour examines the concept of sustainability at Earthaven through social, ecological, and economic lenses. Not only will you get a glimpse of what has worked through time, but also hear about what has been challenging. And you will have a chance to ask questions!
