Los Angeles Eco-Village: Sustainable Community in the City

This is a car-free eco-village in Los Angeles, California. This post is thanks to Johnny Sanphillippo and Faircompanies.

The community is unique because it’s about 3 miles west of downtown Los Angeles and all residents are car-free (their main source of transportation are bicycles). Even better, the Los Angeles Ecovillage residents have created a bicycle shop, vegetable gardens, composting areas, clotheslines, fruit trees, micro-businesses, chickens, a food co-op, and more. We need more places like this, don’t we?

    I’m not far from LA and it’s nice to know there are still some communities of eco thinking people around. May God richly bless this little community and send someone to help take up the concrete. Perhaps there is someone who needs a place to make a drive area for parking elsewhere and the two sides could go halves on moving the concrete? it’s a thought. 🙂 Happy Gardening!

    I love the idea that you paid cash for the properties. Way to go!

    That tool shop looks like a good place to repair your bicycle.

    Can any one recommend a tiny home designer/ contractor in Los Angeles, CA. I am looking to turn a rundown guest house into a great tiny home. Thanks!
