Joshua Alvord is a human being dedicated to the stewardship of a healthy and thriving planet. The majority of Joshua’s time and energy is focused on regenerative community development. He founded a nonprofit organization in 2012 called Local Earth. The primary focus of the organization is to develop a global network of educational ecovillages. The 1st phase of the Local Earth Village is currently being developed outside of San Diego near Valley Center. Phase I is focused on a prototype Living Cluster for 12 people and will be completed by the beginning of 2020. The team is currently beginning plans for Phase II which will begin in 2020. Phase II will be a village of approximately 150 people located on a larger property. The location of the Phase II village is still being determined and the core team is currently being developed. See website for more information on the village blueprint. Local Earth also provides environmental education via the Ecological Lifestyle Immersion, Local Earth Discussion Series and Earth Stewardship Alliance. Joshua is a joyful and passionate being driven by purpose and love to create healthy communities for all!
