Learn How to Live Sustainably…….. Experience our Ecovillage and make a Difference

 

The Source Farm Ecovillage is achieving the goal of sustainability and is a timely relevant model as communities and societies struggle to envision what a livable low- carbon future might look like.

Your tour guide at the Source Farm will tell you about the history, culture and philosophy of the community and will be available to answer any questions you may have. In addition to the philosophy of an intentional ecovillage you will be shown visual tools of permaculture including water catchments, composting, animals and the organic farm. The tour will include a variety of sustainable building technologies including; Steel Span Quonset Hut Nature School and Woodshop, Earthbag structures and a Monolithic Dome home. You will also see various technologies of solar, wind and light tubes being used throughout the ecovillage. At times the Daughters of Indigo Sewing Cooperative is open and available for shopping.

The cost for the tour is 1000JA per person ($10US) and participants are asked to sign a liability waiver form.

It can be a long tour for children–please consider the limits of their attention span when considering bringing them or not. Visitors with small children please be advised that there is a pond at the Nature School around which children will require particular supervision. Do not bring pets.

The tour is about a half mile and generally takes about 2 hours depending on your questions. Tours involve a fair amount of walking, so wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather(there is no air conditioning). You might want to bring bottled water.
