We are in the early stages of creating a small eco-village and education centre on 38 acres in county Offaly, Ireland. We currently have 4 full-time residents and a network of regular visitors and supporters.
- 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.
- Deepen our connection with nature.
