Four times a year, Dyssekilde holds a village meeting to vote on issues affecting the residents. For highly charged issues, a debate is held on the Thursday before the Sunday vote, which includes a spread of food organized by alternating housing groups.

Shown here is another house with a southern facing green house and southern facing skylights installed in the roof.
