I simply cannot contain my excitement about finding this community! If my current life wasn’t so dependent upon society (school, work, career), I’d be driving out there yesterday to check it out and make move-in plans!
The dancing rabbit is an ecovillage in Missouri comprised of women, men, and children who live as sustainable as possible, while staying connected to society. Their homes are made of repurposed wood, cob, strawbale, and even a repurposed bus!
This village uses solar and wind power to provide much of the resident’s energy needs and avoids many high-energy appliances altogether. You won’t see any dryers or desktop computers at this place!
The people living at this community grow their own vegetables and seem to have some farm animals on their property as well. The diet of most residents is vegetarian or vegan. Food such as edible mushrooms and berries are available on the property. Some of their food comes from local sources.
The greatest part about this lifestyle is that everybody works together in order to sustain the village. Cars are shared, festivities are celebrated together, children learn from a variety of people, food is often prepared cooperatively, and decisions regarding the village are made by all.
Just as excited as I am? Want to know more about the lifestyle, sustainable living, and the people who live here?
