Programming category: 

At each Sustainability Sunday we focus on one of the four pillars of the ecovillage model: ecological, social, economic, and spiritual/cultural sustainability.  These Sunday events include learning labs, playful activity, a potluck and in-depth discussions on each dimension of what it means to be a sustainable community.   At this Sustainability Sunday we will be focusing on Social Sustainability, as we put the finishing touches on the new Earthen Oven, explore Nonviolent Communication, share some food and conversation over a potluck dinner and dance into the evening at our monthly Music and Movement Jam.  Sustainability Sundays are free and open to the public.

Please RSVP by AUGUST 1ST to:

Please bring a potluck dish to share with the community for lunch (we ask that anyone who does not wish to bring a potluck dish to contribute $5 each).
