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 Ecovillage works to incorporate both the households of humans as well as the non-human members who live in the area that makes up the ecovillage.

Within the eco-village neighborhood are:

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 Zen community under the direction of Guiding Teacher Zen Master Dae Gak. Myo Wol Son-sa has been the Resident Teacher since 2008.

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
