June 1-3, 2001, near Asheville, North Carolina.
Held on 325 forested acres, Earthaven is a growing community with 55 full

waters are clear and refreshing, and the forest is full of wonder. There
will be workshops; networking, good food, music, a high-energy arts, crafts,
services auction and more!

Sunday June 3, "In-Depth with Earthaven":
An in-depth look at life at Earthaven Ecovillage. The morning begins with a
spiritual practice of your choice (including "the prayer of peaceful
repose", i.e., sleeping-in). Then, after breakfast, we'll go on a walking
tour of Earthaven, followed by a panel discussion with a variety of
Earthaven members --your chance to ask all those questions about the
realities of community life. During the afternoon, take your choice of two
presentations by Earthaven members on various aspects of our process:
Natural Building, Forestry, Family Life, Governance, Finance,
Ecospirituality, Land Stewardship, Growing Food, Education, The Village
Earthaven was founded in 1995, inspired by a vision of a healthy,
multi-cultural, economically viable, spiritually diverse and ecologically
responsible community, living in ways that reawaken, heal and nourish both
our awareness of the fundamental oneness of creation and our conscious
connection with the natural world.
Please come join the fun!
