Work has begun on our 2nd eco shelter!

Eco Village Project of Fresno board members are currently 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.
