Singing Rabbit

Hi friends, it’s been a long week! Like Christina mentioned in a previous article, Sundays at Dancing Rabbit are frequently filled with a plethora of community tasks like cleaning our common spaces, Village Council meetings, and (if you’re me this week) writing this article, but last Sunday took a special turn for this village, as […]

Cool Weather

Cool weather has arrived. Parmesan (Farmer John) here, at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. I am not sure how long it will last, but it is a busy time and we are glad to have a reprieve from the heat.  I have been putting finish plaster on my home this week, and I am new to the […]

Not Always Knowing What You’re Doing

One of my mottos for the past few years has been: “just show up and you’ll figure it out when you get there”. Christina here, writing about some of the ways that I have muddled through the past week, and how life at Dancing Rabbit has helped me to be okay with not always knowing […]

Silent Auction

We’ve been having busy late summer days here at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. As I head from a conflict resolution meeting back to the office in the common house, I stop to close the downspouts on the rainwater catchment system, so that this afternoon’s burst of rain will flow into one of our building’s underground cistern […]

Valuing Things That Have No Value

Howdy y’all. Ben here, with another update from the dusty, dry, wasp-ridden savannahs of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage in northeast Missouri. Wasps are in the forefront of my mind, as I’ve allowed the buildup of several large nests around our homestead (peaceful creature that I am) and I am feeling a few stings related to that […]

The Simple Life

Hello friends and neighbors! As I write this column, we are waiting for a cool front to roll in and give us relief from this hot, humid July weather. We live simple lives here at Dancing Rabbit and most folks do not have air conditioning. There are, however, three gathering places with air conditioning, so […]

Christina here, writing about the joys and frustrations of living in a place where I receive so much, and also sometimes feel like I give a lot. Sunday is a very Dancing Rabbit-ish day for me, and this week is no different. It’s one of the fullest days of the week, and definitely the one […]

Fashion Opinion

Howdy y’all. Ben here, writing to you on a cool morning from the mosquito-veiled hedgerows and hillsides of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, when I should be weeding and mulching. With the consistent occurrence of oppressive heat, I would normally use this time to accomplish something tangible, like raking mulch, moving animal paddocks, or beaming nice thoughts […]

Birthdays and Celebrations

Written on July 2, 2019 at 11:01 am, by

June was a big month for birthdays and celebrations at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, as well as our neighbor communities: Red Earth Farms and Sandhill Farm. Avi here, still digesting all the homebrewed beer, freshly baked cake, grilled meat, and scrumptious potluck dishes.  In the last week alone, I helped host a birthday party for my […]

Thunderstorms, fireflies, and whatever else the warm season may bring you

Happy summer, friends! Ted here to bring you the news from Dancing Rabbit in this week of longest days and shortest nights. Not to mention a good bit more rain and some hyper-local lightning storms here in northeast Missouri. We’re in the thick of the early berry harvest, plucking raspberries nearly every day, with black […]
