Eco-Villages, Co-Housing and Farm Conservation Communities – PEI Social Forum

October 17


Eco-villages strive to create, ‘Net Zero,’ housing where the residents live in buildings constructed with environmentally sound materials, produce energy from renewable resources, grow their own food and reduce or eliminate the burning of fossil fuels. Co-housing, can be urban or rural based. Residents maintain their private space but reduce their cost of housing and enhance the sense of community by sharing community spaces that may include, laundry, office, workshops, storage or social gathering areas, etc. Farm Conservation Communities are an increasingly popular way of revitalizing rural areas by creating small housing developments or villages connected to a common farm. This forum will present several examples of each of these housing types and discuss how they might be developed on PEI.
