Winding Down; Still Busy: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Things are winding down around here. We’re lighting fires indoors, pulling out puzzles and needlepoint projects, and saying goodbye to the last visitors of the season. But also, this has been a busy week, as it usually is in the village. Christina here, writing from frosty NeMo, where things are changing but they’re also sort of the same as always.

Eclipse Adventures (Pt. 2): A Dancing Rabbit Update

Eclipse Adventures (Pt. 2): A Dancing Rabbit Update

I'm sitting outdoors just under the tall overhang outside our kitchen's west door. Thunder rumbles in the west, suggesting perhaps a third round of thunderstorms for the day. Tall, rangy sunflowers in bloom and the surrounding oak trees all drip quietly with the remainder of the most recent deluge. Lest I forget, my rooster Rodrigo just came to stand five feet away in the chicken yard and start crowing the presence of his flock just to one side. Boy, can he project. Ted here with this week's news from Dancing Rabbit. I'm still landing back at home here, having just…read more >

Proud to Be a Muse

Proud to Be a Muse

by Brooke Jones I’ve got some exciting news to share with all of you! First, a bit of background... Research has always been an important part of our mission at the Center for Sustainable and Cooperative Culture (CSCC), the nonprofit arm of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, and for the last six years we’ve been working with a team of social scientists to collect data on our resource use and carbon footprint. The results of these years of research have not only enlightened our perspective as to where we currently are (environmentally speaking), but have also pushed us to work harder (and…read more >

Holiday consumerism sucks! Want a better option?

Dear friends and supporters, Would you like to live in a world that focuses more on the meaning of the season than on all the products and sales? Do you think holiday consumerism is a poor substitute for real human connection? Yet does it sometimes seem easier to focus on the “stuff” than to deal with difficult, politically-charged conversations with relatives? You don’t have to settle for a world where we try to bury our conflicts in piles of presents. There is an alternative: you can help us create a better world, one that empowers people to connect—in spite of…read more >

Sad News, Guests, and Land Day: A Dancing Rabbit Update

From my perspective, life in the village of late has been a bit of a mixed bag, with some sad happenings, family and friends visiting, and our annual Land Day celebration. Tereza here, feeling a bit under the weather, but doing my best to keep y'all in the loop. The sad news is more passings. Ted's father, Keir Sterling, passed away on September 24th. Keir and his wife Anne have been stalwart supporters of Dancing Rabbit over the years, and visited frequently, most recently attending Aurelia's 10th birthday party in June. Among other roles he played in his life, Keir was…read more >

Benefits and Compromises
: A Dancing Rabbit Update

It is hot outside. The pond feels like a bathtub, the sun is hazy, the tomatoes are wilting, and I have spotted Thomas on more than one occasion lying on the Common House floor to cool off. Did I mention that I am from New England? Did I mention that I am terrified of the heat? Did you know that it will be in the 90s for days straight this week? Christina here, writing news of what’s been going on recently at Dancing Rabbit, while sitting in a dark room in front of a fan and drinking green tea over ice.…read more >
