About 20 years ago there was a 'City Farm' group which were going to make an eco-village similar to this one. It fell apart when there was no practical way of financing it. Eventually Northey Street City Farm evolved from some of the people involved in the residential City Farm idea. So did Kookaburra Park Eco Village at Gin Gin. There are a few eco-villages around The Green on the southside and one in Currumbin Valley e.g. A blueprint for more developments rather than the sterile McMansions we see now, energy-guzzling and do not produce food.
Wouldn't it be lovely to create one of these locally. I think there would be a big demand to live there.
I think I could live with that kinda life.
All I have to do is win Lotto and I can start one here near Brisbane :) Not a big ask.
I've yet to see this video but have been fortunate in the past to see a doco about Davis. Apparently there's a waiting list of people wanting to buy in. I believe there's a similar if smaller suburb or part-suburb in Canberra; not been looking for it but remember a reference in a doco of some sort.
Thanks for sharing. Inspirational
Enjoyed this film. Thanks for sharing.
If you ever come across the list I would be interested to see it. Not like I have any intention of moving house anytime soon but it certainly holds appeal. Wish I was 30 again :( and open for new adventures like this.
Wow, joining is a bit like asking to be allowed into a secret club. Had to answer a question on bio-mass and tell them who had referred me....that was you Evan just in case you were wondering.
Here he is:
There's such a plethora of different eco type sites these days it's hard to keep track of them all and pick the useful ones out of the not so useful.
