Permaculture is a creative approach to abundant and fulfilling lifestyles. Its practice is growing around the globe, and is a guiding force here at EcoVillage Ithaca too.
Conventional farming in the late 1900's depleted much of the natural health of this hilltop site. Today, organic farming, and intentional restoration efforts by ecovillagers is nurturing the soil, plants and animals that also call this place home.
Farming and Food
We are home to a large vegetable and fruit farm, a U-pick berry farm, and a teaching and support Incubator Farm for new farmers. Villagers are also avid gardeners and altogether, much of the food we eat is grown on-site.
