Telephone Technical Glitch

Hi Everyone,

Well as some of you may know, our phone has been down for a few days now. We are reworking our phone system here at the Ecovillage, and as a result our phone has been out of service for several days. The problems are just about fixed, and our phone number will be in working order in the next day or two. Sorry for any inconvenience. Please feel free to email us: if you have any questions.

Thank you for your patience!
