Village Terraces Cohousing Neighborhood the most developed and populated neighborhood at our Ecovillage with generally 14-16 residents: eight adult members, children, and renters, interns, etc..

Imani Farm is a farm project adjacent to Village Terraces Cohousing Neighborhood within Earthaven Ecovillage. A beautiful 4+ acre area above and below our neighborhood was chiseled from the surrounding forest and slowly turned from degraded forest ecosystem to a fertile, small-scale, pasture-based farm with dairy cows and laying hens as well as plentiful orchards and annual crop production during the growing season.

Earthaven Ecovillage is an intentional community dedicated to caring for people and the Earth by learning, living and demonstrating holistic, sustainable culture. On 329 mostly forested acres, Earthaven supports 50+ full members, and a steady stream of exploring members, students, and visitors. Earthaven is located about 50 minutes southeast of Asheville, on curvy mountain roads.
