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.
We also provide a great place to live, learn, or just hang
out for those who want to make a real difference.
Our most recent incubator project is the development of Hobbit
Habitat Domes. We now manufacture and sell geodesic domes,
yurts, greenhouses, 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.

As a Conservation & Educational Non Profit,
it is our job, our pleasure, and our way of life to support
a New Vision for living, surviving, and thriving in the new
world that is fast shaping itself around us all. Southeast
Arizona is truly one of the most fabulous places to live on
this planet, though like everywhere else we have our own unique
issues and problems. It is solving for those problems that
our “beyond sustainable” community formed. Thus we incubate
ideas, businesses, and on the ground practical Self Reliance
and Resiliency practices while reskilling and relocalizing
as necessary to survive in style.

Real Estate - Another venture of our community
is Eco Green Sustainable Realty
(EGS Realty) and it is the only Eco Green Sustainable
Realty in North America. We specialize in property, homes,
and communities that are some flavor of Green.
One of our listings is at our village on 22 acres off Sassy
Dr in Marana. Prices for buying into our unique community
start at just $39,990 for fee simple real estate. Basic maps

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 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 no longer
the case. There is no more 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.
We call this concept “intentional community.” That is what
we are building at the TTEV Self Reliant Community (Eco Village,)
with a purpose and the intent to survive whatever comes with
style and humor. We also call this “Sustainable Survivability,”
and we are serious about it. And yes we have a plan and are
in the process of implementing it right now. Education, reskilling,
and relocalize are some of our strategies. Even if nothing
bad happens in our future, it is still the best way to live
out this wonderful game of life, which we all find ourselves
engaged in. The world needs sustainable practices in all areas
of life and living. It is just about us. It really is a community
engaged in living a meaningful life.
Call us, come meet us, or take one of our workshops to find
out how you can become a founding member of our unique community
that is beyond sustainability, about sustainable survival,
and an intentional community like nowhere else. Check us out
