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.
