Self Reliant Community Incubator
Greetings and welcome to our Self Reliant Community &
Appropriate Technology Incubator. We are an Intentional Community
providing workshops for many aspects of sustainable technology.
Find out every week about our mostly free workshops on many
subjects at the University of Sustainability here at the Eco
Village. Click here for current updates
We also provide a great place to live, learn, or just hang
out for those who want to make a real difference.
Moringa for Life
Here at the village we are very enthusiastic proponents of
Moringa. We grow Moringa from seed and provide everything
from seedlings to mature trees to Moringa energy drinks and
Moringa weightloss products. We often offer workshops for
how to DIY Moringa (See meetup link above). We have a page
devoted to growing Moringa with pictures at the property.
Moringa Trees & Products
Our most recent incubator project is the development of Hobbitat
Domes. We now manufacture and sell geodesic domes designed
as greenhouses, sheds, workshops and other appropriately sustainable
structures. You won’t believe how practical, portable, sustainable
and useful they are. Not to mention our amazing prices and
quality. Check them out.
In another new project at TTEV we are building a Hobbitat
Town using dome technology and earthbuilding techniques. Hobbitat
Town is supported by permaculture, food forests and real world
science blended with old wisdom many hobbits were known to
possess. Hobbits are sustainable in all ways. They grow their
own healthy food or trade with neighbors that do. They grown
their own smoke. They brew their own ale. They make most of
their own cloths, implements, and equipment. They are resilient
and self reliant as much as is possible given their uncertain
No we don’t have any, or pretend we are hobbits, orcs, or
dwarves, but we do have a Dragon! Turns out Smaug had a sister
and she is a good Dragon. Come help us build this amazing
Hobbitat Town in the heart of our village. Please join our
meetup with the link below where you will be notified when
we are holding workshops and workdays here at Hobbitat Town.
Why Invest in Resiliency...
No one knows what the future actually holds, but it has become
obvious to many that there may be a train wreck in our near
future. It may not be an end of the world scenario, but it
is almost certain to be an end of the world as we know it.
Still, why not hedge your bets both ways, by preparing for
solvable problems and living life to its fullest no matter
what the outcome. Invest in the process rather than the outcome.
We have become almost completely dependent on assumptions
that plenty of cheap oil, clean water, good weather, stable
political systems, continued consumption growth and abundant
cheap food will always be available to us. But clearly that
is not the case. There is no sustainability for any of these
critical commodities or processes. It is not even worth arguing
with the doubters and the ostriches on this subject, so you
will not find any of that here.
