~Where are/will you be located?
We will be located in rural Colorado. There are a few options for land in south-east and central Colorado, so the precise location is dependent upon which plot of land is most compatible with the ecovillage.
~When can i visit? / Can i visit?
We won’t be open to visits until after the first residence has been built and settled into. Ideally, when there’s additional residences ready for residents.
~How can i join Torus Artist Ecovillage?
The process for joining the ecovillage is still in development… as the village grows, so too will these steps. The first, and possibly the most important step, is communication.
~How much is the rent?
There will be no rent.
~What will it cost to live at the ecovillage?
Time, effort, discipline, dedication, love… Our very survival will be dependent upon the proper functionality of the ecovillage.
~Will I be required to do any chores?
Because one of the goals of Torus Artist Ecovillage is to provide artists with as much time to focus on their art as possible, each person will only be required to do one chore per day. Except, of course, for times that require the time and help of everyone, such as large harvests or preparing for extreme weather.
~How long can i stay?
If staying in a room in the Dormitorus, the maximum length of stay is six months.
If staying on as a resident, you will be welcome to stay as long as you like.
~Will i be allowed to bring my animal companion(s)?
Yes, of course!
But let’s keep it reasonable… no animal hoarding situations, large predators, endangered animals, or exotics. Dogs, cats, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, pigs… these animals will be a common happy sight throughout the village. Other in-home pets (small animals, birds, reptiles) will be accepted on a case by case basis.
