“Huon Hill” 48 Reid Street, Corner Havelock St, Wodonga VIC 3690

We are seeking ideas, feedback and support from those interested in the community development project, to help influence the concept and then deliver a practical, smart and sustainable village.

The concept is based on successful ecovillage and co-housing principles.

The project does not have a specific concept plan as yet, merely a vision and some principles, to ensure it will achieve lofty sustainability goals, such as Albury/Wodonga’s first ‘Green Building Council of Australia Communities’ rating and best practice eco-friendly homes.

BigBlueSky2015-331-LOWe have secured guest speaker and Sustainability trailblazer Ben O’Callaghan of Ecomplish Sustainability for the event. Ben is one of Australia’s leading sustainable development and design professionals with over 20 years of experience. He helped to develop The Ecovillage at Currumbin in Queensland, where he also lives.  This intentional community is the most awarded estate in Australia with more than 33 awards including the FIABCI Prix D’Excellence “World’s Best Environmental Development” and a United Nations award.

Come and hear how others have done it and help plan an even better one, in the City of Wodonga! Your preferences, skills and ideas are all needed.
