EcoVillage at Ithaca
EcoVillage at Ithaca is part of a global movement of people seeking to create positive solutions to the social, environmental and economic crises our planet faces.
Since 1991 we have developed an award-winning ecovillage that invites you to live, learn and grow.
Our mission is to promote experiential learning about ways of meeting human needs for shelter, food, energy, livelihood and social connectedness that are aligned with the long-term health and viability of Earth and all its inhabitants.

175 Acres, 100 Homes, 220 Residents
EcoVillage has 175 acres and 100 homes and over 200 residents. It consists of 3 neighborhoods, Frog, Song and Tree. It is one of the largest co-housing communities in the world. Our residents live as families, singles and couples ranging in age from infants to octogenarians. They work in diverse roles as farmers, software engineers, nurses, teachers, writers, poets, builders, musicians, legal and financial professionals, college and school teachers, photographers and artists. We have a variety of working farms, office spaces, community gardens, meadows, ponds and woodlands.
Over 80% of the 175 acres will remain open green space, including 50 acres in a conservation easement held by the Finger Lakes Land Trust.
