What is Eco Vista?
Eco Vista represents a dream of a community that is regenerative rather than extractive, collaborative rather than competitive, and active in co-creating the conditions we can thrive in together.
The word Eco comes from the Ancient Greek word Oikos, which means home. Eco Vista is a commitment to caring for our home together.
We have several ongoing projects in agroecology, circular economy, art, community building, and more. We work collectively whenever possible, and all are free to organize new projects, activities, and collaborations aligned with the goals of fostering a more just and livable world for all, especially those on the frontlines of crises of inequity and climate destruction.
We aim to encourage the foundation of an eco-village in Isla Vista through regenerative agroecology: public food forests, gardens, and native restoration, cooperative & affordable housing, renewable energy, a circular economy based on solidarity, a vibrant web of visionary cultural creativity, radical self-governance, and community priorities determined by those who reside here.
Community values and principles
We are on stolen Chumash land and support indigenous sovereignty, reparations, and land back.
We are a space for BIPOC, queer, trans, and disabled folks.
We are grounded in values of cooperation and mutual aid.
We act and live out of love, the dignity of all living beings, social and climate justice, and radical hope.
