The Ecovillage Community has been forming over the past couple of years with a series of events and functions including:
Clean Up Australia Day groups
Regular site walks, concept tours
World Environment Day stalls
The Village Christmas Markets
Coffee Connect (third Sunday of every month)
Australia Day Picnic and Bushdance
Weekly Village Hall classes and workshops
Monthly Ecovillage Earthcare (EVE)
Annual Sustainable House Open Days
Annual Rainbow Cycle Challenge (Start at Byron / Finish at EV)
Annual Currumbin Valley Tomewin Run (start / finish at EV)
Sacred Earth Concert
Health and Wellbeing Conference
The common denominator of these events is Sustainable Living Practices - the vision of the Ecovillage, to impart awareness of these to the public at large.
Held monthly, Coffee Connect is a chance for social connectivity and information dissemination. This event caters for Ecovillagers only - held in the Old Dairy Rec Centre.
Topics such as sustainable design and construction, water tanks, gardening and community members personal journeys are some of the topics of Coffee Connect.
Coffee connect has been an essential and valued tool for community interaction and sharing of design ideas and mentoring programmes.
A lot of fun is had too on a social basis.
