$400/mo plus $50/month utilities fee per adult plus participating in a once a month neighborhood workday. Earthaven Ecovillage fees apply. Application & Visit required.
Village Terraces is the most developed and most populated neighborhood at Earthaven with very comfortable and ecologically responsible amenities.
