Lost Valley Ecovillage
& Educational Center Site Plan
The presentation addresses “Finding Common Cause” on two levels. First, the residents and stakeholders of Lost Valley needed to find a common vision for the future of the site. Secondly, the site plan represents a combination of two very important, but often not synergized, causes; that of a. rural self-reliant homesteading and b. community oriented mixed use pedestrian friendly village design.
