WELCOME TO THE ECOVILLAGE NETWORK GROUP!

WE HAVE LAUNCHED THE GLOBAL ECOVILLAGE & SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY NETWORK!
PLEASE CLICK HERE TO JOIN

There are so many new sustainable community models emerging during this time of transition and this group is forming to learn more about EcoVillages both urban and rural and share knowledge and information.

How we live in the most basic community level is foundational to our overall shift toward a sustainable culture. The EcoVillage model is one of the most experimental yet well established among the emerging alternatives.

This video is from Undercurrents - EcoVillage Centre for Alternative Technology.


Thank you for joining the EcoVillage Network group here on Transition California. We just posted a discussion about the Lammas EcoVillage. This group is set up so that any members can send messages to the entire group by clicking the 'Send Message to Group" link in the upper right box. To add a discussion simply click the 'Add Discussion' link. The 'comments' box can be used for messages that you don't necessarily want to start a discussion around but if you want everyone to see it then you may as well just send a message to the group - unless you want it permanently posted on the comment wall for future members to read. If you would like something added to the main text box just send us the info and we can post it. As this group evolves we will assign moderator/admin permissions to anyone wanting those privileges and responsibilities.

We look forward to the EcoVillage Network group's purpose and evolution being fulfilled

My dear friends and co-creators of the World!

Main stream mass-media overhelm us with destructive, depressive and negative news and information.

If you are tired of it please join and support the Alternative News Project -http://www.AlternativeNewsProject.org/index.php?referrer=vedicrussia

As opposed to Death you will find Life and a lot of creative, positive, optimistic news and ideas bringing joy, inspiration and food for inquisitive minds.

Hi Fred, I was up there about 6 months ago, very over-grown and getting more dilapidated. There are tons of already existing amenities. In the 50's and 60's there were over 300 people housed there. The Air Force Station was larger than the town of Point Arena. The barracks have been torn down many years ago, the relocatable houses relocated to Point Arena. The PG&E substation is still there, the wastewater treatment plant, civil engineering, motor pool, administration offices, gymnasium, bowling alley (2 lanes), rec center etc are all still there and much more. i plan to go up in a couple weeks and take some pictures, the ones i have now are 20 years old. i am in the process of trying to set up a visit with Bert ( the gov's caretaker of the site). I don't know anything about writing a grant but i am all for "let's do it!". i have an idea that if we can't get it granted to a group by July 4th then we should stage a "Live In", like the good ole days of sit ins, at least when they come to throw us out our cause would be on the 11 o'clock news! I grew up within 50 miles of Kent State, and we still protested! They didn't stop us then, they only strengthened our resolve! I have friends that marched with Dr King and taught in the first integrated class-rooms of the south, that chained themselves to buses to get handicapped access, etc. I think we need to rekindle that fire, that passion, We Are The People! How can we live with empty structures all around and our brothers freezing in the streets? If you'ld like the e-mails already exchanged on this topic, just drop me a note and i'll send them and keep you in the loop for further progress. my e-mail: darlbaldridge@msn.com. I thank everyone for their support and thank you in advance for all your help in making my dream become a reality.

Darlene:  That is a very cool dream you have.  Especially the existing homes. That's the most sustainable form of construction = renovating existing structures.  Does anyone have any suggestions on where to apply for grants/loans?  I am a very fast typist, have put hundreds of proposals together... and would love to help putting together a grant application.  I'd rather DO IT - than talk about it.  Next step would be to visit the site and do an assessment... an AFB though would provide a special challenge - a real special challenge!

Where can i find information about Transition Lake County's eco-village working group? Amazingly, i have put forth my dreams and ideas to the Transition Lake County seed group at least 5 times with no response.

I am interested in getting a group of people who would like to get a grant of the old Point Arena Air Force Station to turn it into an Eco-village Intentional Community/ Education center. I realize i currently live in Lake County and the old airbase is in Mendocino County. i have been in contact with some veteran's organizations and some people from Transition Mendocino Coast. i type very slowly, i'm not a community organizer, but i have a passion for this specific place as it once was my home and i have been designing it into an eco-village in my mind for 20 years. i think part of the beauty of this place is that it has 27 houses sitting empty that could be brought up to living condition in a matter of weeks, not years. Also, like Melissa, i fumble around alot, so if i am not posting this in the right place or whatever just do with it what you must.

Hi Trina - yes it is about time and we all have to make the time to get the new models through the gates and past the gate keepers! 

Cheers
