About Findhorn Village . . . .
FINDHORN ECOVILLAGE – A MODEL FOR SUSTAINABLE LIVING Within the Findhorn Ecovillage at The Park, sustainable values are expressed in the built environment through our ecological houses, innovative use of building materials such as local stone and straw bales, the beauty in the architecture and gardens, and applied technology in the Living Machine sewage treatment facility and electricity-generating wind turbines. Sustainable values are also expressed in the community’s social, economic and educational initiatives.
SUSTAINABLE LIVING The ecovillage model is a conscious response to the extremely complex problem of how to transform our human settlements, whether they be villages, towns or cities, into full-featured sustainable communities, harmlessly integrated into the natural environment.
