About.

A semi-rural ecovillage-in-the-making on ten acres of beautiful Northern California land, one mile out of the town of Laytonville. Ten acres have been subdivided into four parcels which allows for the development of new green homes and community space. We partner with the Solar Living Institute (solarliving.org) to host workshops in sustainability.

The vision is to create an energy-efficient “intentional neighborhood” where people live in private homes, next to neighbors they want to live with, and with whom they share community gardens and community structures. 


Unlike a lot of rural homesteads, we’re walking distance from town, which lowers our carbon footprint and allows us to be more self-sufficient. Ten acres offers abundant space for agriculture, housing, and workshop space. Cultural diversity and the arts are priorities. 2017 work trade is open. 

On Parcel One there is an existing two-story farmhouse that’s about 65 years old, a barn with loft, carport, and several outbuildings. Parcel one is two acres and has road frontage on Branscomb Road. The farmhouse has a new standing seam metal roof, county approved septic system, new electrical service, rebuilt rear staircase, and new energy efficient appliances. A second one bedroom septic system has been approved which allows for an additional home.

Parcels Two and Three are two acres each and are undeveloped. Each have approved four-bedroom septic designs. Parcel Four is four acres and is situated at the back of the property. Parcel Four has forests, sunny meadows, and many possibilities as a community resource. It also has a four-bedroom septic design but could also be left undeveloped as a shared-community habitat space.

Now that the subdivision is complete, those interested in living at the Laytonville Ecovillage will create a core team. The core team will develop the documents, vision, and our own common vision and get down to the good work of creating a life together.
