A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

Marimba!

 

On a sweet Saturday night in September, Earthaven members, residents and friends were treated to a fabulous dance party courtesy of the Chikomo Marimba Band.

Earthaven Member and co-owner of Mud Straw Love natural building company, Mollie Curry, and her builder, drummer husband Steve Kemble are part of the Asheville-based band, which features seven marimbas, from soprano to base (the base is so big they need a platform to reach all the keys!).

The event, a fundraiser for Culture’s Edge, left no one sitting for long with the band’s syncopated and contrapuntal melodies and rhythms. We are already talking about when we might get them back!

Upcoming Events

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!
