A growing worldwide trend, ecovillages are intentional communities with the goal of becoming more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable. They are a response to the breakdown of traditional communities (villages, extended families and so on), increasing social isolation, fossil fuel dependence, natural habitat depletion, globalisation, excessive and wasteful consumer lifestyles, and conflictual win/lose mindsets.
Once considered “marginal and idealistic”, many ecovillages are now quite mainstream; integrating the values of a light ecological footprint and social well-being with modern lifestyles and expectations. Our village is one of these.
Our ecovillage is a partnership between the Tasman Ecovillage Association (TEVA) and the developer for the project, Ilan Arnon. Our Community Development Scheme (strata title) was registered in 2013. We have spend the last two years building foundations and taking the first steps on the road to our vision. The first titles for residential land lots were recently released and we are now actively seeking new members.
We welcome and encourage new participants, whether as owners, residents or visitros, and look forward to working together with you to transform our vision into reality.
