  • Published on September 16th, 2011 by

Ever wonder what it’s like to live in a sustainable community? Or what life is like off-the-grid, using renewable energy? On September 24, Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage will be hosting its annual Open House. The community will be open to the public for an afternoon of tours and behind the scenes information of living in a rural ecovillage.

Here are the full details:

Dancing Rabbit Open House
Saturday, September 24, 2011

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Rutledge, Missouri

Directions: Call or email at (660) 883-5511 or

This is your chance to enjoy free tours,  get a peek inside several natural buildings, and learn about life off the grid, renewable energy, organic gardening, and building with alternative and sustainable materials. During Open House, there will also be a village fair with homemade wares and treats, live music, and much more!

Dancing Rabbit normally hosts tours every other weekend in the spring through early fall, but Open House is a much larger event than the standard tour. You will have the opportunity to see inside several homes, talk to members about living in community, have a chance to learn about upcoming community projects, and browse the homdemade wares made by community members.
