O.U.R Ecovillage

O.U.R. Ecovillage focuses on ecological ways of living involving permaculture design. We are dedicated to researching and modelling ways that are rooted in social, cultural, spiritual, economic and ecological well-being. Each year we welcome many visitors to O.U.R. Ecovillage, where they get the chance to work hard, learn essential "soft"-skills for community building, and build relationships with a unique group of people. Volunteering at O.U.R. Ecovillage enables the opportunity to grow, serve, learn and share, while experiencing living in community and living lightly on earth. We are not able to accept volunteers from November 1 to February 28 as this is our down time.

O.U.R. Ecovillage is a sacred space where all residents co-create sustainable community. We offer a protected green space and a healthy, supportive environment and contribute locally and globally; in return we live, love, laugh and learn together as an international learning community, we are interdependent, viable and prosperous through our deep connection to ourselves, each other and the earth. We are committed to: 1- Treating all people with respect, dignity and fairness 2- Taking both personal and group responsibility including: • being accountable for our actions • measuring and sharing our contribution to the community • making and keeping commitments 3- Demonstrating openness, honesty, clarity, good faith and integrity in all our communications and encouraging shared leadership in our community. 4- A participatory decision-making and conflict resolution process.

It as an amazing experience! In the little time I was there I learned so much, challenged myself, got out of confort zones and made wonderful friends. The residents at O.U.R. Ecovillage are all very welcoming and great teachers. There is a strong sense of community and helping each other which is beautiful. I am extremely grateful for all.

It is an incredible organization, with a great commitment to our planet and our society. Each member of OUR Ecovillage was super attentive. The activities are simple although there is a lack of accompaniment from those who already know what must be done in order to be much more efficient in the collaboration with the organization. The landscapes are beautiful and you breathe a tranquility that in few places exists. Super recommended!
