Our film series on living in ecovillages began November 10, and will continue here in Viroqua through the winter. The next film and discussion night will be Tuesday, January 17, 2012 on the theme “Communication and consensus in communities.” 7 – 8:30 pm at Western Technical College.
At the first discussion, we talked together about our hopes and expectations for living in a community designed by the people who live there. We also addressed apprehensions and questions about what could go wrong. Finally, the three of us who attended from Stone’s Throw outlined what we’ve done so far and answered questions about our plans and goals.
The three short videos we watched are all available online.
