Join EBCOHO for the East Bay/SF exclusive debut of My Favorite Ecovillages Worldwide, a new slideshow with Diana Leafe Christian, author of Creating a Life Together, Finding Community, and editor of the online international Ecovillage Newsletter.
“My Favorite Ecovillages Worldwide” features photos and stories from successful ecovillages in Europe (including Tamera, Sieben Linden, and Damanhur); in Israel; in Latin America (where I haven’t been yet); and my all-time favorite, Kohohana Family in Japan.

* New, effective, and satisfying decision-making and governance methods
* Unusual ways to stimulate trust and connection
* Art for joy and delight
* Successful, ecologically sustainable community businesses…
