Set outside the charming ‘Iowa Great Places’ town of Fairfield, Iowa, Abundance Ecovillage is adjacent to an organic farms and the Sustainable Living Education Coalition campus. Located on 15 acres, the ecovillage is a living example of the phrase “beyond sustainability.“ The Abundance EcoVillage features cutting-edge sustainable technology, and is one of the first developments of its kind in the United States. It serves as an off-grid community powered by wind and sun that harvests its own rainwater and treats its waste with a wastewater treatment wetland.
All the elements of which the community is comprised are designed to work together in harmony with nature. This means that all systems employed are socially and environmentally responsible to promote health and prosperity, both for the individual and the environment. The overall aim of the community is therefore to show that living off-grid is possible and to foster a more conscious approach to living with nature.
