"I may be vile and pernicious,
But you can't look away.
I make you think I'm delicious,
With the things that I say.
I am the best you can get.
Have you guessed me yet?
I am the slime oozin' out
From your TV set"

Ecovillages and Intentional Communities

Ecovillage = A community designed to reverse the disintegration and destructive environmental practices on our planet. Ecovillages are urban or rural communities of people, who strive to integrate a supportive social environment with a low-impact way of life. To achieve this, they integrate various aspects of ecological design such as permaculture, ecological building, green production, alternative energy, community building practices, and more. Ecovillages allow people to experience their spiritual connection to the living earth. People enjoy daily interaction with the soil, water, wind, plants and animals. They provide for their daily needs - food, clothing, shelter - while respecting the cycles of nature. They foster recognition of human life and the Earth itself as part of a larger universe.

Intentional Community = a group of people with a shared vision choosing to live together and work cooperatively to create a lifestyle that reflects a common value or purpose.
