Founded in 1971 by a caravan from San Fransisco, The Farm started as a spiritual community that has served as a model for sustainable development and community living for over 35 years. The Farm now encompasses over 2,000 acres, houses many ecologicaly-based businesses (including the Ecovillage Training Center), and hosts bioregionally-related events of many kinds year-round. Holding this event at a successful ecovillage will allow participants to experience life in a permaculture-designed village full of earth-friendly housing, cooperative forestry, and consensus-based decision-making.

Sorry; I can't see the Peter's July 2009 Video in my Home Computer (very poor 'Rams' I supose).
Hope to see it Tomorrow in a 'Cyber' in the side of my present Home (Today, here in Chile, is a 'Religion Non Work Day', so it is close).
