DEblockedION : We are group of people who came together and decided that we wanted more than just your typical housing. We want a community. We want the ability to make more of a difference in the world and in our community. We want live in an ecologically sound way. Finally, we were also fed up with other cohousing and ecovillage projects in Toronto failing to come to fruition and wanted to change that and create the first ecovillage in Toronto.
Our building(s) will be either be retrofitted or designed to be energy efficient and for the use of latest environmental technologies.
Our building(s) will provide us with the means to reduce our ecological footprint, reduce our consumption and reduce our cost of living expenses.
Our building(s) will be designed to foster a sense of community, to enable a calmer pace of life and to enable our residents to live and eat healthier.
Our community will be designed so as to assist and further enable activists, activist and non-profit organizations, worker cooperatives, and small-scale artisan and environmental businesses that can help make a difference in our community, our city and in the wider world.
We are an established group with an established vision. Our structure, a non-profit organization, provides us the structure where we can make key decisions easily and get things done, while maintaining our values of having a consensus decision-making process for our members.
We hope this and future projects will redefine cohousing and ecovillages with its well thought out design and be a model for future cohousing developments.
New people are always welcome!
