EcoVillage Ithaca is a living laboratory. We’re all about learning, and offer guided tours for groups and individuals. College classes, trade associations, families and eco-tourists find their visit enjoyable and enlightening.
We serve post high school students through our 8 week Eco-Gap program as well as visiting college students, green building professionals, and beginning farmers via tours and workshops focused on energy, housing, municipal planning and creating sustainable land-based livelihoods.
