Set outside the charming ‘Iowa Great Places’ town of Fairfield, Iowa, Abundance EcoVillage is adjacent to organic pasturage for horses and the SEED Center/EcoBarn. Located on 16 acres, the Abundance EcoVillage features 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 to live with the lightest, cleanest, and most harmonious footprint possible and to foster a more conscious approach to living with nature.
