Seeds for Eco Communities

Our mission is to share information, tools, and confidence with people around the world on how to start living healthy and sustainably through a respectful relationship with the surrounding lands and waters in low/zero impact eco-communities. We are currently in the planning phase of the pilot community and looking to obtain land in the near future. Visit our website for more info!
