Although Dancing Rabbit is still a small community in the pioneering stages, we call ourselves an ecovillage because our goal is to grow to be a town of 500 to 1000 residents who are committed to radical environmental sustainability.
We are housed in a variety of living arrangements, eat a variety of foods, and work on varied projects. Our society is flexible enough to include egalitarian and co-housing communities, and individual households. We may have different approaches to some issues, but the common desire for environmental sustainability underlies all key decisions at Dancing Rabbit.
Although Dancing Rabbit strives for some level of self-sufficiency and economic independence, we do not sequester ourselves from mainstream America. Rather, outreach and education are integral to our goals. We vigorously promote ourselves as a viable example of sustainable living, and spread our ideas and discoveries through visitor programs, workshops, academic and other publications, speaking engagements, and the like.
