Alternatives to the Traditional Models of Home Ownership and Bank Finance at Narara Ecovillage. Our next Friday night zoom will see us chatting with Deb who does the finances for our Ecovillage. We have many interested followers who can’t afford to buy a lot and build a house, or who don’t want to be tied down to a mortgage for 30 years, or who can’t get a bank loan. Deb is a creative thinker and she will share some of the strategies Narara Ecovillage members have used to secure their happiness here at the Ecovillage. She is inspired by flexible housing scenarios abroad, as well as the diversity of the people who are drawn to our community.
