O.U.R. Ecovillage Public Tours

There are two ways to tour O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE: 1) the Guided Public Tour and 2) the Self Guided Tour.

 

Guided Public Tour

Your time here will begin with a one-hour educational PowerPoint presentation; this will include handouts, reference materials, networking, and Q & A time. From there we will move outside for a one-hour site walk (tours are rain or shine so please dress accordingly with proper footwear).

Some things to keep in mind

  • As we love all animals, we ask that you LEAVE pets at home, for the safety and well-being of all our animals and livestock.
  • Children are a welcomed part of O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE. We ask that the parent/guardian take full responsibility and supervision for their children while on site. The building sites, woodworking shop, and gardens are areas where children must have adult supervision at all times.
  • Add lunch for only $12.  We offer a mostly vegetarian, yummy, mostly organic, and mostly from O.U.R. Garden. Please confirm any food issues/allergies if you are planning to stay on for lunch after the tour.
  • If you are coming from a distance and wish to book in to OUR Eco-GuestHouse please book through http://ourecovillage.org//contact/food-and-accomodation/

TOUR starts at 10am! Please arrive at 9:45am in order to seated for the beginning of the tour start – you will be walking right into a tour presentation if you arrive late or your directions pose any challenge so please leave yourself lots of time.

LUNCH at 12:30pm, add lunch to your booking for a recommended donation of $12!

Some things to keep in mind

  • please close gates behind you wherever you go as we have (overly friendly) free range livestock on site.
  • please watch for children and animals when moving your car
  • please respect private spaces and just to ask questions and introduce yourselves as you move through the grounds (this really helps O.U.R. folks to locate why you are stopping and talking with them!)
