We are in the preliminary stages of planning for a large ecovillage somewhere in New England. We're looking to combine a family farm with an emphasis on the arts, especially music. Our hope is that the farm will eventually supply a large percentage of the community's food, and possibly support some income producing businesses as well. We'd like to be near a town, but not in one. We are mainstream professional people. We believe that living in a sustainable, earth-friendly way requires thoughtfulness but does not mean deprivation. We would love to achieve something like the integrity of a European village, and the physical beauty of the village will be a priority. We would like to be energy-independent, or at least close to it, and want to look at the full range of options for achieving that. We love the idea of living in community with our neighbors and working together to achieve a richer life. It is not our intention that every member of the community will necessarily do farm work. Each member will contribute, but in different areas. We are especially looking for: Musicians, especially classical Organic farmers with experience in sustainable agriculture and animal husbandry Business experts Artisans of all descriptions, including bakers and chefs Engineers and technicians attracted to interdisciplinary innovation and problem-solving We want to include members of all ages and configurations - singles, couples, families with children, retirees. Our community will not be faith-based and will certainly not have an official religion, but members should be accepting of spiritual practice. We would like to attract a core group of eight to ten families within the next year so that we can begin looking for land by the end of 2008. Please email me if you are interested, or if you have ideas/experience in getting a new community off the ground. Thank you! Enid McKitrick Currently in the Washington, DC area
