Can we imagine a way of life that is more integrated and less isolating? Can we imagine an economy that is more resilient, less damaging to the natural systems on which we rely, and conducive to local autonomy?
Communities around the country and the world are asking these questions and experimenting with more cooperative and sustainable ways of doing things. I've come to stay and work on one such community, an ecovillage in southern Alaska, to learn what I can from their ongoing efforts.

On a solar note, Wednesday night was our shortest night of the year, with exactly 5 hours between sunset and sunrise (11:37 - 4:37). Doesn't leave time for things to get too dark.
