Laytonville Ecovillage Sustainability Immersion Part IV: Intentional Communities
Wednesday | March 29, 2017 | 8:00 am — Monday | July 10, 2017 | 5:00 pm
Laytonville EcoVillage | Laytonville, CA
Laytonville Ecovillage is a small, growing, permaculture inspired, green community in the making, located in Northern California’s beautiful Mendocino county. Inquire about parcels for sale and the land share opportunity.
The course is broken down into four weekly modules which one can take individually or as a whole month-long engagement with the land and material. Each week’s topics and workshops are interrelated and cover a wide range of subjects from permaculture, natural building, green building and solar technologies to intentional communities and social/environment dynamics and structures and the “bio-cultural corridor.” We encourage you to take the entire course. A month-long “living together” immersion is like no other experience. Prepare to have your paradigms shifted!
