EcoVillage at Ithaca is part of a growing global movement for a saner, more sustainable human culture. Comprising an intentional community and a non-profit educational organization, the project is developing an alternative model for suburban living which provides a satisfying, healthy, socially rich lifestyle, while minimizing ecological impacts.
EcoVillage currently includes two 30-home cohousing neighborhoods, FROG and SONG, with a third 40-home cohousing neighborhood, TREE, completed in 2015. The village is also home to an organic CSA vegetable farm, an organic CSA/U-Pick berry farm, office spaces for entrepreneurs, a neighborhood root cellar, community gardens, and meadows, ponds and woodlands. Over 80% of the 175 acre site is planned to remain green space, including 50 acres in a conservation easement held by the Finger Lakes Land Trust.
