EcoVillage Ithaca - Case Study

Come hear Altair Members Andy and Sally Benton share their direct personal insights into this vibrant model community!

Altair calls itself an “EcoVillage.” What do we mean?  Ithaca can help us understand this… Come share our experiences with one of the most sustainable developments in the US. 

  • Ithaca is on the international circuit of EcoVillages (Global Ecovillage Network)
  • They built three very different Cohousing communities 
  • Andy and Sally visited recently and will share slides and talk about their experience
  • Zoom with Liz Walker, Executive Director and author of the book Ecovillage Ithaca and her colleague and developer Rod Lambert.
  • We will gather at 3:30 pm.  Please RSVP if you would like to see Altair's site – we are offering a tour around 3:00 pm.

    Bring a potluck dish to share for a dinner around 5 or 5:30 pm.  Park at the Kimberton Arts Building at Kimberton and Prizer Roads and walk up the hill six houses across the street.
