Success at SLF

12th November
 
If constant conversations and questions for two days are any measure of the interest in our presence at the Sustainable Living Festival then you can say it was a HUGE success!! Many enquiries came from people who had already seriously contemplated living in an intentional community. Their reasons were many and varied but included: lower living costs, food security, energy autonomy and living in a more co-operative, supportive culture.
 
Some enquiries came from people who were coming across the idea for the first time – “What a great idea” was a common response. One person talked about her desire to live a more self-sufficient life but realised this was a huge task for a single family unit; she could see that sharing tasks and resources made a lot of sense. Another person (a software developer who travels regularly overseas) was attracted by the idea that he could plant a garden and have food crops that don’t die while he was away!
 
It was really inspiring and motivating to be around so many people looking to live lightly and lovingly on the earth and with each other :-)

New website launched

Well, I guess that is a bit of a no-brainer since here you are at our new website! With a revised concept and other exciting developments in the project over the last year, we felt it was time for a fresh look. Please take a good look around and get in touch if you feel for it. Since the website is so new, we very much welcome any comments, feedback or glitch reports! Enjoy … and hopefully see you in the village soon :-)

CDS approved!

Tasman Ecovillage Community Development Scheme (CDS) was approved by the Land Title’s Office in September. It is the first of its kind in Tasmania and we are really excited by the possibilities, not only for us but other intentional communities in Tasmania and, maybe, the rest of Australia. The CDS offers all the usual benefits of strata ownership, which include title to your land and shared common property, together with flexibility for governance and land tenure systems.
 
Approval of the CDS means we can move forward with welcoming people who would like to purchase and build in the village and we are really looking forward to this next stage. Many thanks to Andy Hamilton for the long hours and huge heart he brought to this part of our project!
