Findhorn Ecovillage Project Background
The Findhorn Community aims to completely transform its home at Findhorn Bay Holiday Park into a demonstration Ecovillage.
So far over fifty ecological homes have been constructed as well as a new Guest Lodge and Youth Building, a 750KW wind park, two new visitor eco holiday chalets, biomass boilers and an ecological wastewater treatment plant called a Living Machine.
An independent study completed in 2006 by the Sustainable Development Research Centre concluded that the residents have the lowest ecological footprint of any community measured so far in the industrialised world.
Projects for the future may include the expansion of the Phoenix wholefood store, the introduction of low-carbon vehicles, further development of ecological houses and facilities, and the creation of new affordable housing.
