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.

Scene of the crime, one of the more elegantly decorated family cabins
Deep fried seitan, avocado, sesame seeds and udon (in place of sushi rice). Others have cucumber and tempura pepper, onion and carrot
Possibly the best soup of my life, a super rich split pea, Connor's doing
For dipping we have your classic soy sauce, a shoyu-wasabi mix, and an experimental tahini dip
