Eco Villages Australia

Connected Living, Sustainable Living 

Our land is suffering and people are disconnected.

Eco Villages Australia (EVA) is a non-profit organisation that provides the legal and financial model to create collaborative housing eco-communities for small groups of people (5-15).

In these communities, residents become stewards and caretakers of the land as they work co-operatively, make decisions, and take responsibility for their ecological sustainability, social prosperity and economic viability. EVA has been carbon neutral from inception. 

Some of the individuals loan money to make the purchase possible. All short and long term residents pay rent which is used to pay back those who made loans and for expenses, land care and improvements. When the loans are paid back, residents are then off the financial 'merry-go-round'. More info on EVA's "Collective Stewardship" model is here. The first eco village site was purchased in 2019 in Maleny, Queensland.

If you want to start a village, see the 'Starting a Village' page.

"Social disconnection has hit epidemic proportions. Now is the time to find a way to connect with self, each other and the earth."
Andrew McLean - Co-founder EVA
