Wanted: Assistant Director For Organizing The Ecovillage
By Trish Mikkelson, Founder and Director
Right now, I am the founder, director, and only member. I have worked hard since Oct. 2016 to plan many details and get some building done. You can see my work on this website. The building includes two decks for possible housing, and partially finished common house on the ecovillage site.
I am looking for an assistant director so we can do the following:
*Finish planning all details of the ecovillage so people can feel secure in exploring possibilities and joining.
*Give each other emotional, spiritual and physical support so we can have the strength to complete this task
*Publicize the project and inspire people to join on various levels.
Ideally, this person could live here in the beautiful log house that I have use of until Oct 15, 2018. However, I am open to working with someone from a distance.
William Wilberforce and his friends, who helped abolish slavery in England over a 40 year period, lived in a community setting. They provide an example of a spiritual community which helped to change society in radical ways. With the internet and all the knowledge gained over many decades about thriving in community, we have the potential to create healthy ecovillages that nurture our bodies, minds, and souls.
Once up and running, Vegan Utopia Ecovillage can help others start their own rural and urban vegan ecovillages.
I believe we can address every challenge that we face on this planet when we have the power of community. Do you want to be the assistant director to help this get off the ground and make a huge difference in the vegan movement? Learn more here.
We are not accepting interns at this time. Please contact us if you want to be put on a waiting list. We can't wait until we have the capacity to get this program going!

I, Trish, had a faith shift on Feb. 1, 2018. I had the revelation that Jesus is my friend and guide, rather than Lord and Savior. No longer calling myself, Christian, I hope to be starting spiritual gathering that will welcome people of all spiritual paths and beliefs that align with loving kindness so we can encourage each other on our unique spiritual paths.

We offer resources for living a life of health and compassion using a plant-based diet. We encourage a whole-foods approach with mostly raw foods. Making ethical choices in all aspects of life, including what we eat, is a foundational decision that helps our body, mind, and soul. Just as importantly, we help to alleviate greatly our negative impact on the environment. As long as people eat animals and hurt them, we will have human suffering. We want to alleviate suffering for all of life. Learn more here.
