This workshop is based on designing and living in actual communities. This is the real stuff, not just theory, from some of the best village designers, people with collectively more than a century living in and co-creating intentional communities and ecovillages. The 8-day course covers principles of site selection and the built environment, the market for sustainable community, why people chose to live in ecovillages, financial aspects, work issues, the permaculture design process, restoring old sites, wildlife protection, bonding, decisionmaking processes, transforming conflict and constructing happiness.
