We have a heart-warming story to tell, and a large audience  that’s listening. Since our founding, the bold and innovative nature of our project has garnered media attention. National press includes the New York Times, Time Magazine, CNN Earth Matters, National Geographic and NPR. International coverage: Japanese and Indonesian TV, El Mundo , Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Korean radio, French Public Television and Al Bia Wal Tania. Numerous documentaries and books include Karen T. Litfin’s EcoVillages.

Whenever possible, we welcome reporters, documentary producers and others. We make time to talk with you and set up your visit, because we think telling our story is important. Along with a tour and overnight visit, you may want to schedule an interview or photo shoot. Please contact us at least two weeks in advance.
