Located on an extraordinary 25 acres near Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia, O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE began operations in 1999 with a vision to create a model demonstration sustainable village community rooted in social, ecological, and economic well being. O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE is the host site for O.U.R Community Association, a registered nonprofit society dedicated to the promotion of sustainable community living. People from all walks of life and all ages are able to benefit from educational programs facilitated within O.U.R. developing site.
We welcome on our demonstration and educational site volunteers, interns, hearthkeepers, teachers and school groups from all over the world who are interested into learning more about Permaculture, Sustainable Wellness and Community Living. Each year, numerous courses such as the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC), the Re-generative Village Living and Homesteader Re-skilling Program, the Permaculture Teacher Training (PTT) and many workshops are taught. We also grow vegetables and fruits, raise livestock and build our houses using natural and recovered materials.
O.U.R.’s ECOVILLAGE mission is to demonstrate alternative ways of living that are more respectful of Nature and communities.
