My Amazing Journey To my Dream ( an Ecovillage )
Hi guys, when I wrote a blog about my dream/imagine where i would be in 2020(http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/imagine1-my-future-your-f...
), I wrote on how I wanted to be the founder and manager of my very own ecovillage. When got some feed back from other evoke user about maybe writing a blog about an ecovillage near my home. I did so, I found out about the Lynedoch Ecovillage roughly 30 minutes from my home and proceeded to write a blog on that(http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/lynedoch-ecovillage
) In my blog i stated that I was going to try and visit the ecovillage.
Today I woke up at 7.00am to set off to go and visit the ecovillage. I arrived there at about 8.00am this is where the magic started. As I walked through the main gates of the ecovillage I was struck by the sense of tranquility and serenity. I only had to walk a matter of steps to be greeted by a friendly worker. His name was Lukus and he was doing the litter clean up. I asked him what exactly the litter clean up was and he explained that every day it is a specific persons duty to walk around the entire village and pick up all the litter that was lying around. I helped him finish off the last bit of the village clean up as we chatted about how the ecovillage worked and how I could possibly get involved. He walked me around and showed me how the village was self reliant on natural energy. He also gave me a chance to take a look around in the green house where they grow and produced all their fruit and vegetables. The main focus of the ecovillage is the eco-school which they have set up. The school students are mainly farm children and a few of them are sadly suffering for foetal alcohol syndrome This school is fully self sustainable. They even have a no energy required air-conditioning system where they have special metal pipes that are place all around the school that help reduce the temperature.
I unfortunately was unable to meet the professor in charge today but I am trying to arrange a meeting for next week saturday because I would really like to get involved with this project. I have heard that evoke are going to be supporting projects like these and I would possibly like to make my impact on the Lynedoch Ecovillage.
Here are some pictures of my amazing journey today:
