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.

My lakes are fuller than yours
These little guys were all over, clinging to our clothes when we passed through their turf
The bugs, strangely, were not so bad down low but became a crazy nuisance as we got up towards the summit.
More for the wild and crazy scat collection
...and chocolate chips Had to resort to snow after the water ran out. Long time melting.
