Auro-Ecovillage Shawnigan Lake
This is an expression of a dream for the creation of a large-scale ecovillage collective for the East Shawnigan Lake area of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
With reference to the communities of Auroville, India and Findhorn in Scotland, and with a nuclear family including the existing community of O.U.R. Ecovillage, this future Village of villages will direct toward a place of joy, abundance and universal well-being for all.
Any who share such a thought are welcomed to connect. For details please contact.
Status: Adding ecovillage communities
