A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

Back at the White Owl… Again!

by Arjuna da Silva

 

After some time as a private residence and then, well, kind of sad and empty, the White Owl is once again being used for special events, including a Middle Eastern-themed feast and supper club with chef Carleigh O’Donnell, shown here forming pita bread, with chef’s helper Jenna Payne checking the garbanzos.

This first of a soon-to-be monthly event (next one: Ethiopian on January 24th) was by reservation only and limited to a small, first come-first served group. White Owl resident and host Art Meyers is offering the venue to members for special events like these, as he and his family make plans to expand the space available for them. Here guests are awaiting table service and other royal treatment!

After a sumptuous dinner, topped off with pomegranates and dates for dessert, and toasts to an elegant future, folks retired to the sofas for more intimate conversations.

A few weeks later, Carleigh and Jenna offered a Sunday brunch, and all available seats were quickly taken! Here’s Chuck getting tea while folks worked out the seating.

And here’s Brandon Greenstein, who ran the White Owl years ago, getting a hug from Carmen Lescher, who returned to Earthaven recently and says she’s here to stay!

Virtual Earthaven Tour

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!
