Behind the Veil of the Herb Spiral with Abby Colehour
Exploring the invisible structures behind an ecovillage. Is this a community or a glorified apartment complex? What motivates us to offer our gifts here? How do we draw on diversity to adapt to changing circumstances? How do we factor in equity and inclusion into community processes? What would long-term ownership look like? Join the multi-tool community creatrix Abby as they take you on a tour of Eugene ecovillage Maitreya from the inside out, offering more questions than answers as we weave new strategies into old systems to build a world that works.
