What Our Community Says

Read what people are saying about their experience at OUR Ecovillage

The courses at OUR Ecovillage are a life changing experience for everyone who attends. I mean it. The comprehensive thinkers, designers, and builders on team have a serious specialty or two to share with you. They will take care of you.

Mark Lakeman
Permaculture Teacher

OUR is a fantastic place because when you’re here permaculture is all around you: you’re living it and seeing it in the gardens & natural buildings. Many people come into permaculture with a dream of founding a community or an ecovillage and here – they’ve actually done it.

Teacher and activist

OUR is committed to modelling & sharing the future we all need. Whether you stay for an hour or a decade, a piece of the village goes with you – and a piece of your heart stays there. Deepest bows to all who work to evolve this important community space.

Jason Guille
CEO @ Stream of consciousness

Register for a course or a workshop today.


Observe the land in all its seasons and deepen your understanding of how it interacts with the wider environment around it through the practice of permaculture.

OUR learning center is host to groups who wish to learn in an immersive environment about how they may live in harmony with the earth sustainably. We are all teachers and we are all learners.



OUR volunteers are invited to contribute their gifts to the village and learn community through building relationships with each other and to the land itself.  Well, it starts with communication.



At OUR workshops, retreats, and ceremonies we connect to the healing ability we each have within through traditional wisdom, scientific knowledge, and the healing power of nature
