Reactions to Earthaven

Yesterday’s Sunday Washington Post newspaper (and web site) features an article about Earthaven, a small, energy conscious, environmentally responsible intentional community in western North Carolina.

I found the article to be surprisingly thoughtful and mostly respectful. Writer Joel Achenbach explores the attitudes and interests of people who are willing to try to live “Another Way“.

It’s been interesting to see how readers respond to it. Comments at the Washington Post range from sincere appreciation to sneering scorn.

A blogger at expresses concern that the article may cause as many problems as it highlights.

What do you think?
