September Open Day - Online

Due to the current the restrictions, this event will now be held online by Zoom.

A FREE 75 minute online forum to ask Narara Ecovillagers all those curly or curious questions you have.

Brew up a Sunday morning coffee or tea and quiz our Ecovillage members on the topics you’ve always wanted to ask about but didn’t know where.

Our monthly Open Day for August is sadly cancelled due to lockdown so find out what you want instead without leaving the comfort of your home.

  • Start by meeting Village Founder Lyndall Parris for a short update on the latest milestones in our social and building developments.
  • View a short video of the emerging Village, its buildings and the stunning valley where we are located.
  • Then choose to join the conversation you most want to get the skinny on…

Family living at Narara: what’s it like to raise children there, school options, support and more

Legal and Finance issues: Get the facts on the ins and outs of financing a building and where to find answers to your legal questions. What does it cost to live in the community and what do I get for this?

Sustainable Building: Technical and material queries and design experience in our diverse buildings to date. What do you want to know, and how can we make it possible?

Culture and Community: Ask how we make these words a reality to support our residents and bring us together.

Collaborative Living: Meet and quiz our collaborative housing pioneers. What does it look like, ownership, financial and legal questions and who could I share this idea with? Is this a way to live in community for you?

Food production in the Village: Ask our veggie growing, permaculture, chicken-raising expert amateurs what’s on offer and how to get involved.

This online session is all about YOU and anything you need to know to help you turn dreams of Ecovillage living a step closer to reality.

There remain only a very few lots unaccounted-for in our Stage 2 development so the window is closing for the last members to own and move into this successful Ecovillage community.

Price Times are tough for many so choose to attend free or make a $10 donation towards our event running costs.
