Seeds for Eco Communities is actively seeking the right piece of land to establish our first pilot community in Ontario! 


In addition to looking for land for a pilot community, we are beginning to assemble various information, tools and resources required to support ecological community-based sustainable living.  Check out our fact sheet on the laws and permits to consider when looking to establish an off grid home or community in Ontario.
