Self Reliant Community Incubator

Greetings and welcome to our Self Reliant Community & Technology Incubator. We are an Intentional Community providing appropriate technology workshops on subjects as diverse as growing Moringa to permaculture design. Another big part of what we do is incubate Artistic and Home Based Businesses. Get off the grid and out of the grind with a business that does not involve daily commuting and supports Art in all its many splendid forms; the art of living, the art of expression, and the art that is everywhere on this awesome planet we co inhabit.

Join our meetup for email notices for our workshops, seminars, classes and announcements. Our meetup group is Sustainable-Tucson-Eco-Village-Group We never send spam or even know your email, but you will receive our announcements.

We also provide a great place to live, learn, or just hang out for those who want to make a real difference. And we are a living library, University of Sustainability and an on the ground experiment in living a resilient self reliant lifestyle by using ancient wisdom and skills combined with cutting edge technology. We don’t have all the answers, but with years of research we are now trying to make it all happen and you can be a part of this.

Why Invest in Resiliency...

No one knows what the future actually holds, but it has become obvious to many that there may be a train wreck in our near future. It may not be an end of the world scenario, but it is almost certain to be an end of the world as we know it. Still, why not hedge your bets both ways, by preparing for solvable problems and living life to its fullest no matter what the outcome. Invest in the process rather than the outcome.

We have become almost completely dependent on assumptions that plenty of cheap oil, clean water, good weather, stable political systems, continued consumption growth and abundant cheap food will always be available to us. But clearly that is not the case. There is no sustainability for any of these critical commodities or processes. It is not even worth arguing with the doubters and the ostriches on this subject, so you will not find any of that here

That is why we are building a Self Reliant Community at TTEV with a purpose and the intent to survive whatever comes with style and humor. We also call this “Sustainable Survivability,” and we are serious about it. And yes we have a plan and are in the process of implementing it right now. Education, reskilling, and relocalize are some of our strategies. Even if nothing bad happens in our future, it is still the best way to live this wonderful game of life. The world needs sustainable practices in all areas of life and living. It is not just about us, it really is about a community engaged in living a meaningful life. We call this concept “intentional community.”

As a Conservation & Educational Non Profit, it is our job, our pleasure, and our way of life to support a New Vision for living, surviving, and thriving in an uncertain world. Southeast Arizona is truly one of the most fabulous places to live on this planet. Though like everywhere else we have our own unique issues and problems. It is solving for those problems that our Self Reliant Community formed. Thus we incubate ideas, businesses, and on the ground practical Self Reliance and Resiliency practices while reskilling and relocalizing as necessary to survive in style.

Call us, come meet us, or take one of our workshops to find out how you can become a founding member of our unique community that is beyond sustainability, about sustainable survival, and an intentional community like nowhere else. Check us out at www.ttev.org or call Dave @ 520 262-3306 to chat.
