Michigan Ecovillage: An Intentional Community for Sustainability
Michigan Ecovillage is planned as a rural, multi-generational educational intentional community, economically anchored by an interconnected network of Worker, Consumer and Housing Cooperatives serving a Senior Continuing Care Community (including Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Care); and vertically-integrated ‘farm to table’ organic food production and processing. The Caregivers’ and the food production service workers’ young families with children will co-locate in housing intermingled with Seniors, and share community facilities. A Co-Housing Community for young professional families, as well as, small group homes for autistic or developmentally disabled adults will also be co-located. All community members will share the community facilities of commercial kitchen/cafeteria, child care, exercise facilities, and community gathering center.
Come learn how intentional communities can demonstrate long-term sustainability, climate change mitigation and adaption, and economic viability of urban and rural villages of 150 to 300 people.
