Peak Moment 231: Columbia Ecovillage (part 2) — Shaping a Life Together

What’s it like, living in an urban ecovillage? Barbara Ford finds that this size community enables people to contribute while doing what they love. Dennis Karas and his wife had to adjust to noise levels with more children around, but enjoy having many friends with shared values. All community members are trained in consensus decision making and conflict resolution, and work on teams for the common good. Noting the contrast with so many breakdowns in our culture, Lisa Weasel values people coming together and working across differences, while downscaling and being sensitive to the environment. Episode 232. [] See also Columbia Ecovillage (part 1) – From Apartments to Community (episode 231).

    A wonderful attempt at a resilient, self sustaining, local community. Unfortunately, when the rubber hits the road, they are surrounded by another six hundred thousand people that are not prepared.

    It would be a very good idea to start practicing martial arts, or better yet, build a fortress wall and arm yourselves to the teeth, because the rest of your community aren’t going to be all that touchy feely when things really start to go bad.
