Sirius Community » About Sirius

We are an established ecovillage, modeling permaculture principles in our design of gardens, homes, guest facilities, and outbuildings. Living in harmony with Nature is pointedly emphasized, as our physical lives are seen as direct reflections of our relationship with spirituality, which is our primary concern. We thus use non-toxic building materials, organic gardening methods, composting toilet facilities, and vegetable oil for fuel, along with solar and wind generated power. In order to reduce harmful vehicle emissions, a number of members and other villagers have formed a co-op to buy bui-diesel gel for their diesel powered cars and trucks. Bio-diesel fuel is made from renewable plant sources instead of petroleum, and its use as an alternative significantly reduces the production of gases causing acid rain.
