Coole Eco Community is a project dedicated to land regeneration and community living. It is a small eco-village and education centre on 38 acres in Ferbane, County Offaly, Ireland. There are full-time residents as well as a network of regular visitors and supporters.
Our goals are to:
Grow food while regenerating natural eco-systems instead of depleting them.
Reverse rural depopulation and revitalize our local rural community and economy, create local green jobs and reduce commuting.
Monitor and record biodiversity.
Reduce our carbon footprint and waste.
Live together with mutual support and care.
We welcome visitors and are actively recruiting new members and helpers. If you contact us in advance, we will be happy to show you around.
