Village Economics at Earthaven Ecovillage

The Ins and Outs of Money and Wealth at Earthaven Ecovillage

Saturday, May 8
3-5pm Eastern Time

A viable economy is a key component to the success of all ecovillage and residential community projects. Yet, in stark contrast to the predatory, industrial, and highly consumptive nature of our world economic systems, Earthaven looks towards a more elegant, fair-share design for economics that includes right livelihood, living wages, sustainability, cooperation, and village well-being.

Discover the economic structure in this rural Appalachian intentional community, including how Earthaven itself raises funds for capital and operating expenses, how the neighborhood co-ops structure ownership and fees, and how individual members survive financially. We’ll also discuss business structures, what we’ve gotten right and wrong, and the future we hope to create around money.

Join us as we envision a new story about time, money, and wealth.

This workshop is hosted by SOIL (School of Integrated Living) and is a partnership between SOIL and Reclaiming Wisdom. Lee Warren is a co-founder of SOIL.

    "Lee conveys the importance of end of life planning with humor and wisdom. Together our community group was able to thoughtfully explore these decisions we tend to avoid. The sense of relief many of us felt at the end of the day was palpable. What a gift for our friends and families as we take the burden of hard decisions off their shoulders by ensuring our wishes are known ahead of time! So grateful."

    "The End of Life workshop with Lee Warren helped me to organize my thoughts while also inviting me to honor my feelings and hopes for that time of life. Lee is an excellent facilitator."
