NEWS FROM LA ECO-VILLAGE:
– CRSP is rebranding to the Los Angeles Ecovillage Institute (LAEVI) and we are seeking an Associate Director to work with Lois. If you or someone you know might be a fit, see the job description here and get in touch. This is our 40th Anniversary, so it’s about time.
– The LATCH Collective is preparing to donate a tiny house to L.A. Eco-Village which will be located on our commercial property at W. First St. and Bimini adjacent to our large multi-family apartment building. This may be the first of 10 tiny houses forming a small cohousing and/or and/or short stay hostel in the north end of the Los Angeles Eco-Village.
– Aquaponics System. We are still seeking expertise that can help us activate our system generously donated to LAEVI for an extended loan. Let us know of your interest. Lois 213/738-1254
