L.A. Eco-Village

Urban ecovillages work to strengthen communities and bring neighbors, art, and environmental action together.

"Urban ecovillages work with surrounding neighborhoods and the city at large to bring a whole systems perspective to urban planning and community development activities. The L.A. Eco-Village Demonstration is part of an international network of sustainable neighborhood groups which seek to model healthier ways of living based on environmental sustainability and social and economic justice." -www.ecovillage.org.
