[Archived] Call For Feasibility Investigations: Summer 2014 Trips to Balaclava, ON (Ghost Town-to-Ecovillage?) and/or Bridgetown, NS (Church to Cooperative Housing, Workspace & Community-space?)

Hmmm...  Can't recall exactly when I stumbled upon the article about the first home.  (I'm a bit of an information junkie.)  This was the original article that I "favorited":  Then I visited his website for more pics:


I absolutely love the vid you sent.  Everything I own would work perfectly in that gorgeous home (and the story was lovely as well).


I'm a small town Northern Ontario grrrll who lived in the forest for 4 years before moving to Ottawa, and who more recently lived in Nigeria, so I'm definitely OK with living simply and without the usual creature comforts.  It's the anonymity I'll miss, methinks. ;)


I think I'm attending tomorrow evening's see what's what and meet a few of the transitioners.  Have you been to any of these?
