JP, make sure you have shiny or white roofs and grow shiny or white crops - your ecovillage can help cure global warming!

Cool.
Heading 'How to live well on two city acres' made me think, where would I get 2 city acres from????? I wish!
the biggest block near me is 500sqm or 1/8acre. and averages $2.4m/acre.

(but I have been looking :-) )

Mmm... bit like when the drought is over eh?
I don't think so...
Though Boyd there should be some bargains there for the next few years,
for those who have some cash or real equity.
I don't see a pick in the ecconomy without something real to sell and someone to buy it...

I had seen that article in Mother Earth before and really enjoyed it. It is amazing how much the land can be made to work for you.

I've been having fun drafting up a proposed plan for the 10-acre parcel with a stone farmhouse from the 1760's. Doing the drawings, with careful compliance to local ordinance is helping us understand just exactly what we could do on it. It's looking promising.

Hi All,
So I've been a bad and negligent AP-er who hasn't posted in way too long. I thought I'd update you on everything that's going on here, and the saga of the Fish-that-lead-to-an-Ecovillage.

The quest for land has finally led us to a small plot in West Grove, PA. It's only 6.8 acres and actually slopes north (wrong way for solar in the northern hemisphere), but you can walk in to town, and local government is receptive. We also found a great developer, who was fascinated by the fact that I grow tilapia in the sunroom, and really wants us to raise fish in the community. I really feel that AP was one of the things that convinced him that he wanted to work with us. At this point, my life is consumed by the ecovillage, although the AP system is still running and feeding us a good meal when I have time to clean fish.

We have an Agreement of Sale signed for the land, and are doing our Due Diligence right now. We will have a Go/No-Go decision in December, but everything looks good so far except the economy. We present to the Borough Council tomorrow night, so keep fingers crossed for us.

If you want to see the land and current status, visit us here: http://www.concordecovillage.org/

I've checked 'Notify' for this thread, so I'll see it if you post here, but I just don't have the time to monitor the whole board like I used to. Hazards of grand vision and new employement, I guess. Hope everyone is well and the fish are fat.
