The Open Source Ecology experiment was formulated in 2003. The practical experiment began on a 5 acre parcel on the outskirts of Madison, Wisconsin, USA. Networking with early collaborators, the project found its new home on a 20 acre parcel in Osborn, Missouri. In 2006, the project moved to its permanent location in Maysville, Missouri – to Factor e Farm – birthplace of the Global Village Construction Set.
