Abstract:

Population growth, climate change, peak water, and peak oil greatly stress the land and its people. In the past, various green communities were introduced to alleviate and combat these issues, but none took hold in the planning field. Communities continue to grow in destructive ways. However, ecovillages, a relatively new community type, are forming all across the world, offering an alternative community, offering benefits of ecological, social, and economic sustainability. No one template exists for individual ecovillages, rather each is shaped by the local people and the land. The goal of this research was to plan an ecovillage that would offer a sustainable solution to expanding population in Cache Valley (Utah-Idaho). An extensive literature review and visits to seven ecovillages provided an initial understanding and hands-on experiences and learning opportunities. In addition, four interviews allowed one-on-one communication with individuals currently living in ecovillages. This project identified and analyzed potential ecovillage features for a South Cache Ecovillage. The site identified as a suitable area for a "new town" in a previous study (Cache Valley 2030), serves as a location for the potential ecovillage; with GIS used to spatially identify a suitable layout for the ecovillage in that area. Two potential ecovillage layout options were developed.
