What is the Learning Community?
The Learning Community. This group includes a team of village residents, the new co-op ownership group, various teachers, facilitators, program coordinators, guest speakers, participants from the on-site ‘Natural Building Skillbuilder’ and ‘Sustainable Food Production Skillbuilder’ (both on-site residential programs), and various other guests.
What can I expect?
A typical day during the week is as follows:
- the day begins with a communal self-facilitated breakfast followed by a morning check-in with your project team
- projects have an eight-hour framework during the day (with a community lunch in the middle of the day) but this is very dependent on the interest/abilities of the Ecovillage Explorer participant
- Evening dinner is shared with all other members of the Learning Community in the summer months.
- After dinner there might be a weekly program with guest speakers, an educational film evening a night around the fire sharing stories and connection or just free time to spend with friends on-site
Accommodations for the Ecovillage Explorer include camping in our on-site woodland spaces or staying in our dormitory. You may upgrade to stay in the Sanctuary room at an additional fee, based on availability.
*includes meals, camping, site costs, solar showers, composting toilets, day program participation, evening programs, and any of the one day workshops on-site.
