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.
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.
