The Los Angeles Eco-Village Intentional Community consists of approximately 40 folks who have moved to the neighborhood to live more ecologically and more cooperatively. Most of us are demonstrating the processes—ecologically, economically, and socially —that manifest an ecovillage. We are raising the quality of community life while lowering our environmental impacts, and expanding public awareness about more sustainable urban living.

The Los Angeles Eco-Village neighborhood, a place name, consists of the two blocks of Bimini and White House Place in the north end of the Wilshire Center/Koreatown area of Los Angeles.

This website is our virtual home and a gateway to our family of organizations working toward ever greater manifestation of the LAEV vision.
