Better Farm as an Eco Village?

The Ithaca-based Eco Village is an interesting model of sustainable living mixed with educational opportunities. I'm going to dig around the site more on my own, but would love if others would do the same and share their thoughts. Which methods would work with the Better Farm philosophy? What is not something you feel should be implemented? And, most importantly, should we invite these peeps for a BBQ pow wow come Memorial Day?
