If you think you might be interested in living at Dancing Rabbit, or a similar sustainable community, this program will give you firsthand experience that will help you decide.

Quote from recent visitor Erin:  “The whole program was amazing. I was impressed with how thorough it was. There were opportunities to learn about everything from the ecological covenants/guidelines to the village council and non-violent communication methods. I really appreciated how comprehensive it was. Having visited several other IC’s in recent years, I felt like DR members were unusually welcoming, candid, upfront and wiling to share their experiences in a very authentic manner. That really impressed me… I never felt like I was getting a sales pitch. I felt like I was “allowed in" to see the real issues and struggles. I think I got a much more honest picture of community life this way.

Apply for the visitor program today to claim one of the 2 spots remaining!

Ben Sez: It’s Hot! A Dancing Rabbit Update

Howdy y’all. Ben here, bringing the latest happenings from Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, nestled in the humid rolling hills of northeast Missouri. I don’t know if you can smell me from wherever you are, but I can. Right now, I’m getting notes of billy goat, swine excreta, sprouted oats, pencil lead, and beer sweat. I always smell like pencil lead. If you’ve read more than a couple of these ecovillage updates, I’m truly sorry about the constant obsession with the weather. It’s very relevant here. And actually, I’m not sorry. To make an understatement, it is hot and humid, as it…read more >

Relying on Others: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Saturday morning I went out for my normal Ultimate engagement with my many friends who like to chase flying plastic, but had to sign a couple releases before I could play. Rae and Aaron, who play Ultimate with us now and again, as well as serving on our Outreach committee and running a private business engaged in the production and good use of video and audio content related to community, had arrived with gear. Rae with a digital camera took video from the sidelines as we played. A drone flown by Aaron took aerial footage at the same time, which…read more >

A Mix of Worlds: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Hello! It’s Stephen and I’m back on farm after being away in Los Angeles for six months, and I’d forgotten what summer really means. Stepping out of the airport: hot and sticky—why did I wear pants? How soon can I take them off? And arriving here, at Dancing Rabbit: so much greenery and life! Plants shooting up wherever they can. Birds, so many birds. And bugs, yes. The invisible, getting-in-your-skin and itching kind too. It is so not California. And with all of that, and with seeing everyone here again, and with our house—Casa Caterpillar—it feels very good to be…read more >
