6. Membership Model

Updated: May 21, 2021

Eco Villages Australia, being a legal entity, has a membership model.

Just like small businesses, most intentional communities fail. Many successful intentional communities have a prolonged process for people to become residents yet make it simple and quick to leave when circumstances change. EVA's membership model reflects this reality.

The sort of people who will make great eco-villagers:

  • subscribe to the values of your community.

  • have good self-awareness and are committed to personal development.

  • enjoy contributing.

  • can balance their own needs with the needs of the group.

  • aim to be non-judgmental and value everyone for who they are.

  • have good communication skills.

  • have practical skills and are open to learning new skills.

  • have a history of healthy, positive relationships.

  • can meet the financial needs of the community.

Hello, I have some questions!

My sister, 68, her son 31 and me 70 would be interested in being part of the community. We live on the Central Coast NSW in a rental but I feel the rent may increase when our lease is up in August to a level we can't afford. Anywhere else will be unaffordable as well making us homeless.

We are on the Aged Pension, the son on Disability (doesn't require a wheelchair).

I run a from home plant business that lockdowns and major surgery (for me) has diminished somewhat. Sis loves gardening too.

Your village life would give a sense of security we don't get in a rental ie owner sells, terminates us to increase…
