Samantha and Brett and their children Flynn and Arwen

The Macdonalds were first drawn to the Ecovillage by its beautiful natural landscape, and the idea of their family living sustainably, and have gained much more along the way.

As natural-learning home-schoolers, Brett and Samantha are excited by the thought that their children will be surrounded by a loving community, and can benefit from the knowledge and skills available for them to learn and experience from the diverse group of people around them.

They have plans to owner-build a modest rammed-earth house on a budget, and are looking forward to living a wholesome life within a rich community that nurtures the environment.

The community that we experience is amazing, more than what we ever expected, we love everyone involved like a family and we haven’t even moved in yet!Samantha
