Where are the up and running, healthy, multigenerational (with kids and older folks) ecovillages in the Western USA? Ones that are NOT specifically organized around a religion or spirituality (though there's nothing wrong with that)?
I've been Googling around quite a lot. Also searching the GEN map, ic.org and more. There surprisingly seems to be very few, if any, with more than 1 family. Most are singles or couples.
I ask partly out of desperation because we (my family and I) really need this. And the earth needs it. I'm mainly looking in California (where I'm from) and I'm shocked that I can't find a single community at the level of Dancing Rabbit or similar communities in the Midwest and East Coast. (By the way, I'm excluding cohousing, which is out of our price range and not as closely tied to the land as we would like.)
So, if anyone knows of such communities, not just in California but in the whole the Western US, please chime in. I really hope my searching ability is lacking.

Here in new Mexico, in a mountain paradise lies a family oriented community with infrastructure, housing and everything for your family to thrive. Nice housing, ownership opportunity, gardens, cooperation, no agenda other then don't harm others and teach others your skills and help those who are in need. Contact tom, www.unityonesolutions.org
I hear you. I have been pretty frustrated and discouraged running into the "communities of one" (or one couple) while really looking for a multi generational village to be a part of. If you would consider WA you might check out Finney Farm. I think they're on the small side but may be a fit for you. Good luck!
