FOG Research Project

The F.O.G. Landshare Research Project was designed (and funded by Agriculture Canada, The Real Estate Foundation and The Notary Foundation) to help facilitate a path through the various barriers faced by landshare projects that have multiple stakeholders involved with multiple activities.

Given the holistic and diverse nature of O.U.R. Ecovillage, and due to the “Rural Residential Comprehensive Development Zone” we created, it has been challenging to find conventional models of ownership, finance packaging and mainstream governance models. O.U.R. Ecovillage Cooperative was created to pilot a new ownership model, develop a socially responsible mortgage/financing package with Van City, and allow for comprehensive governance.
