A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

The Trading Post is NOW OPEN!

On October 5, 2012 at 10 a.m., sounds rang through the village as a group of Earthaven Middle Schoolers rang bells, banged on drums, sounded the didgeridoo and shook tambourines for a full five minutes. At the end of the five minutes they shouted, “The Trading Post is NOW OPEN!”

Folks from all around the village cheered in response.

A group of homeschooled Earthaven residents ranging in age from 10-13 (and a mom) have spruced up, stocked up, and re-initiated the retail shop at Earthaven.

The young folks have been learning inventory, purchasing, cash handling, stock rotation, accounting, merchandising, customer service and teamwork, all of which has been a part of their hands-on learning curriculum.

Julie’s organic ice cream bars, organic chips, and chocolate seem to be the most popular items, but we carry from apples to Zevia sodas, to personal care items, books, camping gear, and more.

We are also open in cyberspace featuring handmade goods from our very own ecovillagers.
