Open Village Days 2018
NB: Next Open Village Day Saturday 27 January 2018.
Last Saturday of each month 1-4pm.
Note there will be no Village Day in December.
Each month we hold a Village Day so that you can explore our property, experience a snapshot of village life, and learn about our amazing project.
Site tours depart at 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
You are welcome to spend the rest of the afternoon participating in one of our village activities, maintenance or construction projects, picnicking on our beautiful site, and chatting with Ecovillage members (many of whom have unique skills and experience in everything from permaculture to natural construction, animal husbandry to tool libraries and wellbeing). Your children will love exploring our natural playground, and are most welcome to participate in our activities too.
For information about activities and stalls available each month, check our facebook page.
Tea/coffee, water, and a seasonal fruit platter will be available. Please feel free to bring along your own lunch or afternoon tea to enjoy, or explore the growing options available at our village stalls and juice bar.
Cost to attend any part of the day: Individual $10, Family $20
At other times our front gate is closed so if you would like a private site tour, please contact us.
Please note this is a rural property. We recommend wearing enclosed shoes (not thongs or sandals).
Our mission includes striving for ecological sustainability. We ask that you leave your pets at home when you visit the Ecovillage.
If you enjoy yourself at the new-format, monthly “Village Days”, why not sign up for membership of our Network (which is a kind of “Friends of the Narara Ecovillage”) and get free entry to the “Village Days” for the next twelve months. Annual membership only costs $40 a family or $20 an individual. Not only will you be supporting the ecovillage project, you will receive discounts on all workshops, bird tours etc.
You can join the Network online at http://neln.org.au/join-us/, or sign up at the Network desk at the Village Day on Saturday.
On the Village Day you will have a chance to learn about the ecovillage project, get your hands-on something earthy, or just enjoy the view of our beautiful dam.
