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 spent the last two years building foundations and taking the first steps on the road to our vision. All residential land lots have now been released and several have been sold with new homes already in place.
We welcome and encourage new participants, whether as owners, residents or visitors, and look forward to working together with you to transform our vision into reality.
