The Eco House is a place where students create the future. This inclusive community is centered around living sustainably, both environmentally and socially. With projects like composting, rain water collection, hydroponics in the greenhouse, and a permaculture garden, students are constantly engaged in reducing their impact on the external environment while simultaneously providing for the needs of the community. House dinners with fresh produce create a unique bond among residents who are always there to talk about difficult issues and help each other through hard times. The Eco House is a living laboratory for exploring new ways of building community and organizing production to create the change the residents want to see in the world.
