Tours are a great entry point into learning the history, purpose, and development of Earthaven Ecovillage. These tours are designed to provide learners with a deeper understanding about living in community as well as the strategies and solutions possible for doing things another way.
In just a couple of hours, you’ll get a very informative introduction to this 26+ year experimental journey of social, environmental and economic sustainability. You’ll not only learn of things you might want to do, but also what you might NOT want to do.

The Earthaven campground serves participants in organized in-person programs, including Earthaven Ecovillage tours. The campground is generally open April through October.
The campground is in a forested area near the village center. The campground has drinking water, a compost toilet, propane-heated shower, and a tarped camp kitchen. The campground does not have electricity. Please bring your own food. Earthaven does not have facilities to serve food to the public. The campground is near the Council Hall for emergency phone calls.
Most camping is in tent sites, with cars parked in a nearby parking lot. Two sites are available for vans, small RVs (30 ft maximum), and car camping. There are no water or electric hookups at these sites.
The campground also has a rustic, screened cabin with bunks.
