We are a small group of ordinary people, from various walks of life such as businessmen, secretaries, artisans, health workers, etc. that try to be aware of the state of humanity and the earth, and are concerned that the current lifestyle we all enjoy may not be sustainable or even desirable. We are looking for a more harmonious, fulfilling lifestyle that can be lived while still preparing for major earth changes.
Above ground, using sustainable architecture we are building earth-bag, eco-friendly homes capable of comfortably accommodating 2 adults, but they are easily expandable to accommodate more. Basic units will consist of 1 bedroom, a bathroom equipped with shower and washbasin, and basic kitchen. Below each eco-dome will be a Subterranean Catastrophe Shelter. These will be made to withstand what may be very harsh conditions.

Eco Village Leshten is one of the most attractive and authentic rural villages in Bulgaria, located in South-West Bulgaria, high in the Pirin mountain.
The Findhorn Foundation is a spiritual community, ecovillage and an international centre for holistic education, helping to unfold a new human consciousness and create a positive and sustainable future. Our community is an experiment in conscious living, an education centre and an ecovillage on the west coast of Scotland.
Within the Findhorn Ecovillage, sustainable values are expressed in the built environment with ecological houses, applied technology in the Living Machine waste water treatment facility, the biomass boiler, and electricity-generating wind turbines, as well as the community’s social, economic and educational initiatives.

I’m glad to see that there is many of us. I’m an African woman who has been living in Europe since 30 years. Next year I will go back to Africa and my aim ist to live free from any kind of dependance. I’m curious about how you manage a life in an ecovillage.
I’m so happy I can learn from your experiences.

Some friends and I plan to build an eco-hamlet in the South-West of France, we are very interested in the earthbags houses of Nader Khalili, we also like the straw houses, the Earthship houses (but very expensive) and the Kerterre made by a Evelyne Adam.
Have a beautiful day,
