A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

Late  Summer Abundance

Lammas, the traditional day to celebrate the bounties of the harvest season, falls at the beginning of August. It’s an appropriate time, when the earth’s growth gives forth her gifts.

Virtual Earthaven Tour

Saturday, September 10 @ 2 – 4 pm EST

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!
