I have heard good things about the ecovillage Dancing Rabbit. It’s doing well. Unfortunately, it’s not a continual community. The way it is set up – in rural Missouri, many people have to move on for work or what not. Maybe one or two founders live there, but otherwise it’s different people so a bit different than most cohousing.
I met someone who lived there and loved their time there. They had to move on to find an in-person job at the time. They also said it’s hard to date if you are gay.
One thing they said was amazing. If someone has an idea, everyone says yes and helps out. Or if someone wants to play a game, they say yes. Such creative, fun energy. Like in improv you always say yes.
A few years ago a TV show filmed there. The person I talked to was in that video but they and everyone else moved on. I did see a post recently of someone else who now lives there and talks about life there. They let people stay and intern all the time. Check it out.
