Help Us Create An Ecovillage in New Jersey!
Ecovillages are communities that strive to integrate a supportive social environment with a low-impact way of life. To achieve this, they incorporate various aspects of ecological design, cohousing, permaculture, green building, alternative energy, and much more. There are over a hundred such communities in the United States and thousands all around the world.
By creating the context for lifestyles which are “successfully continuable into the indefinite future,” ecovillages are living models of sustainability and examples of how action can be taken immediately toward resolving some of the most pressing problems of our times. Since 1998 ecovillages have been included on the United Nations’ Top 100 Listing of Best Practices.
A group is forming to work toward establishing the first ecovillage in New Jersey. Our goal will be to enrich life by building a community that prioritizes supportive social structures and a healthy relationship with nature. We welcome you to join our project, whether you’re interested in future residence or simply helping to realize a vision of a better way to live!

“There is one way forward: the creation of flesh and blood examples of low-consumption, high-quality alternatives to the mainstream pattern of life. And nothing — no amount of argument or research — will take the place of such living proof. What people must see is that ecologically sane, socially responsible living is good living; that simplicity, thrift, and reciprocity make for an existence that is free.”
— Theodore Roszak, Where the Wasteland Ends
