On this frosty winter day the sun is shining in through the large south-facing windows of my passive solar house. Inside it is a toasty 73 degrees , while outside it is only 20 degrees. Yet the heat has been off for hours. The design of this energy efficient home is the kind of simple, elegant solution we need to combat runaway climate change.
In the same way, several new initiatives in our EcoVillage are shining a simple yet elegant path forward in how we can better live, learn and grow. In this newsletter we look at the joys of raising kids in community; a pilot Gap Year program which will be rolled out this fall; and a way to sculpt land to preserve water for regenerative agriculture.
