Community

One of the great benefits of living in an urban area is the connection that we have to a diverse community. As part of the community, the Eco-village works to incorporate both the 90 households of humans as well as the non-human members who live in the 200 acres that make up the eco-village. We are also looking to expand to the other streets that are contiguous to the Imago Earth Center. The Price Hill Eco-village on McPherson is the first expansion to these streets. All of Price Hill is also part of our community.

As part of the eco-village we have:

Hilltop Co-op
The Hilltop Co-op purchases items in bulk through United Natural Foods. This is the
same company Wild Oats orders from, and many items are less expensive through the co-op. We order once every 4 weeks. If you would like to join or for more information, contact Jim Schenk or Deborah Jordan

Cincinnati Zen Center
The Cincinnati Zen Center was founded in 1994 and is part of the Furnace Mountain Sangha, a world-wide Zen community under the direction of guiding teacher Zen Master Dae Gak. The center is led by Abbot Annie Weisbrod, Vice Abbot Steve Hegge, resident teacher Myogetsu Osho and a board of directors.

PRICE HILL, PART OF OUR BROADER COMMUNITY
We also see the broader community of Price Hill as part of our community, the residents, organizations and businesses that make up this resident friendly neighborhood
