New EcoVillage in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia

WEBWIRE – Friday, May 18, 2012

A new intentional community focused on bringing together people who want to live and work in an environment that encourages sustainability, personal growth and lifelong learning is coming to the New River Valley.  The Floyd EcoVillage is currently under development and scheduled to open in phases over the coming months.

Funded by private investment, the 75 acre property features designated spaces for residential living units, some of which are planned as duplexes, some single family homes.

Every building will be built to a high energy conservation standard using as many locally harvested building materials as possible and with a net-zero energy use plan. Some will be built by the homeowner, others by the community to be offered as rental or leased housing.
