 News

On May 22, 2016, our Fundraiser Garden Party raised more than $7,000!  These funds will contribute to our health & education fund for current DEG residents.

On December 23, 2015, we received news that the Dakota EcoGarden will receive $5,000 in funds from the UPROXX-sponsored Game Changer Contest!  For more information, please visit our blog post:

Game Changer Contest

On Dec 4, 2015, work began on our 2nd eco shelter!

Eco Village Project of Fresno board members are busy writing grants to upgrade the Dakota EcoGarden home w/ solar energy.  We’ve joined Continuum of Care, a social service program that handles federal & state grants for homeless projects.

We’re also actively searching for a property, 1 to 1-1/2 acres in size, on which to build an eco village site as originally envisioned and designed by Architect Arthur Dyson.  In the mean time, we’re working on making a second eco shelter prototype at the Dakota EcoGarden a reality.

  1. To Nancy: As your childhood friend, I must tell you how impressive this project is that you and your group have taken on. It sounds really creative and a wonderful outreach to people in need of this kind of help. Bless you!

  2. The heavy equipment in the photo above digging the 6 ft. deep trench (30 ft. long) will be the main component of the passive cooling system in the new eco shelter. Nancy W.
