Frequently Asked Questions

Do you give tours to the general public?


Once a month, on the first Saturday at 3pm, we have a public tour of the ecovillage. Please join us! Show up at the Welcome Post at the bottom of the driveway adjacent to the wood chip depot. Occasionally we do special tours for groups that contact us. Another way to get a tour is to join a tour for prospective residents. These are given on a regular basis when we are filling housing vacancies. You can see if there are vacancies by checking the Craigslist Portland, Oregon housing ads for “ecovillage”.




How do I get on the vacancy notificaion list for housing?


We maintain a rental availability notification list for housing for those interested in joining the community when no vacancies exist. Please send an email to kailashecovillage@gmail.com to inquire.




How much does it cost to live in Kailash?


We have different housing options. One bedroom apartments are available from $950 to $1050 per month with a minimum 1 year lease. The rate for each apartment depends on its level of remodel. We have 4 private rooms in Amrita House for rent for $500 and $550 per month with a minimum 1 year lease. We also have two 2-bedroom units. Please inquire for the current rent.
