Yup - the tofu munchers, the animal lovers, the nature walkers, the bike riders, the environmentalists, the organic garden growers....?

Preferably single ones....but at my age that might be too much to ask!

Pacific Northwest/NorCal and parts of New England to a lesser extent are the centers of tree hugger culture.

Read the chapter on Ecotopia in the landmark book "Nine Nations of North America" by Joel Garreau. It was written 30 years ago, but still largely rings true today.

Every state has their town...even the Midwest & South. It depends how big of a town and what climate you prefer.

Several areas in the Southeast would fit your criteria, with the bonus of a lower cost of living (versus some other suggestions), a long growing season and the singles potential as all are college towns.

Asheville, NC
Boone, NC
Carrboro, NC
Chapel Hill, NC
Durham, NC
Athens, GA
Chattanooga, TN

Ground Zero is Humboldt County in Northern California followed by Eugene, OR and Olympia, WA. Like hard core tree huggers there.

Not sure about that. Can't say there is a town like that in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina. Or Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, and I'm sure there are more that I am missing.

NC has Asheville, Chapel Hill, Georgia has Athens, otherwise, not so much.
