Connections: What is an Ecovillage

Apr 16, 2015

What is an ecovillage? It’s a small-scale community that aims to have minimal ecological impact. Ithaca has its own ecovillage, founded in 1991 by Liz Walker, who is coming to Rochester to speak to Flower City Cohousing. That’s a local group that is trying to build its own thriving cohousing community. Members of their organization will be with us. The panel:

  • Liz Walker, co-founder of EcoVillage at Ithaca
  • Jane Ellen Bleeg, Flower City Cohousing
  • Kathy Albertini, Flower City Cohousing
  • Tony Toscano, Flower City Cohousing
