EcoVillage at Ithaca, located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of upper New York State, is the first cohousing project in the State and the first place in the Western hemisphere to build two cohousing neighborhoods as part of the same project.
As part of a growing global movement for a saner, more sustainable human culture, the project aims to develop an alternative model for suburban living which provides a satisfying, healthy, socially rich lifestyle, while minimizing ecological impacts.
Comprising an intentional community and a non-profit educational organization, the Village currently includes two 30-home cohousing neighborhoods, an organic CSA vegetable farm, an organic u-pick/CSA berry farm, office spaces for cottage industry, a neighborhood root cellar, 2 neighborhood community gardens, and varied natural areas. Over 80% of the 175 acre site is planned to remain green space, including 55 acres in a conservation easement held by the Finger Lakes Land Trust.
