BREAKING NEWS! EcoVillage Breaks Ground!
Post, photos, and video by the Hawthorne Hawkman
The first steps in new construction have started today in the Hawthorne EcoVillage!
If someone would have told me two years ago, in the midst of some of the toughest battles this neighborhood has seen, that this year we'd be building new houses in the EcoVillage, I'm not sure I'd have believed them. But here we are.
It's not just one house going up; we have new owners in the EcoVillage, another family will be arriving soon in a home featured on the Minneapolis/St. Paul Home Tour, and Habitat for Humanity will be building/renovating as many as ten homes in and around the EcoVillage. By the end of this year or early 2011, we'll likely have half a dozen or more new residents. We thank our dedicated partners in this project and the essential work from Hawthorne members!
