Narara Ecovillage is located at 25 Research Rd Narara. Please contact us if you have questions about our events.
Join a site tour and celebrate the emergence of our ecovillage homes at the heart of this beautiful property. Enjoy a talk by our founder, Lyndall Parris, and learn more from a Q and A session. If you are up for exploring the property further and chatting with members as you go, a second walk will take in our rolling rural land which links us to the magic of the Strickland Forest. Children are always welcome.
1:15 Site Tours of Stage 1 and Stage 2
2:00 Informative Talk with Lyndall and Q&A session
3:15 Second Walking Tour of Rural Land
Tea, water and a seasonal fruit platter will be available. Please feel free to bring along your own lunch or afternoon tea, or enjoy the offerings from our celebrated Coffee Cart.
Please note this is a rural property. We recommend you wear enclosed shoes and bring sun protection.

Our Mission includes striving for ecological sustainability. We ask that you leave your pets at home when you visit the Ecovillage.
At other times our site gate is closed so if you would like a private site tour, please contact us.
How do you get your family, business team and in our case, 180 people to make decisions, resolve conflicts and feel that they have been heard?
Narara Ecovillage is using Sociocracy. This is a decision-making and governance system that:
• Is inclusive, transparent and equitable, includes all voices
• Promotes a better use of NEV’s resources and co-ordination of activities
• Leads to care, respect and co-operation
• Ensures that results of decisions are reviewed to determine their ongoing usefulness
This system has relevance for communities, businesses, non-profits, families and more.
Come and have a ‘taste’ of this methodology in a presentation by the founder of the Narara Ecovillage, Lyndall Parris.
‘Narara Ecovillage is going from strength to strength year by year – and it is wonderful to witness their journey. They are definitely at the forefront of Sociocracy in practise in Australia that I am aware of at the current time.’ Gina Price, Australia’s leading Sociocratic Consultant.
Gina Price and Lyndall Parris co-presented the Narara Ecovillage experience at the inaugural international, on-line Sociocracy Conference earlier this year.

7pm: Welcome – cuppa or glass of wine
