EcoVillage Ithaca featured in National Geographic

Saving Energy and cohousing are the topics when visiting Winter Solstice at EcoVillage for the feature of this National Geographic article.

“The candlelit tradition is one of several meant to capture the spirit of the season at this central New York development devoted to community and sustainability. The 100 hilltop homes at EcoVillage are super-insulated, mostly solar-powered, and located near three organic farms. With more than 200 people, from toddlers to seniors, living in three “neighborhoods” built between 1996 and this year, it’s the world’s largest example of cohousing, or private homes centered around a common space.”
