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.

Tin up on the roof. The barn is dry!
And the deck of the sleeping porch is up
Puzzling over the Jurassic rototiller
Bill to the rescue
...onnnn second thought let's just use the pitch fork
Mousse in repose (until yesterday I thought his name was "Moose." Turns out he's more French than Alaskan.)
