Opportunities at 8thLife


The 8thLife EcoVillage projecs is envisaged as (amongst other things) 
an Integral Cooperative of these 8+ complementary eco-businesses:

3) the top 3 will be the 'icing on the cake', not essential but really great to have at some point, 
as we have the conditions for these to work and some infrastructure already in place for them.
2) The second layer are the ones we're keen to fill soon as they are ready to go in terms of infrastructure,
as well as quite important in terms of complementing well all of the others, especially the existing ones.
1) And the bottom 3 are the base we're aready working from, covered by the regular residents here 
(click on images for biogs), although all are also open to helpers as we have lots of work on, just with these.
