Event description

Welcome to our Social Distancing Sustainable House & Open Day!

We are building a sustainable community in a beautiful natural setting on the site of the old Gosford Horticultural Research Station at Narara, approximately 1 hour north of Sydney. Our village has a wide range of sustainably designed homes, and some are under construction, allowing visitors a view of how they are built.

Your entry ticket covers:

  • Free guided tours (but you MUST book your place - numbers are strictly limited)
  • Drop-in Open Garden: Scribbly Gum permaculture garden and plants stall
  • Talks livestreamed from Renew in the Visitor Centre (Please note: limit of 20 people)
  • Self-guided tours
  • Coffee shop: meals, snacks and drinks for sale
  • Conversations
    • Many village members and homeowners will be on hand to talk about the village and our sustainable homes. Look for the "Ask me" buttons, or just ask anyway! And please don't forget your mask.

Free entry tickets are available for NELN members. The Narara Eco Living Network is a not for profit educational and outreach body established by members of Narara Ecovillage Co-operative to promote more sustainable living in all its forms. All are welcome to join. Join the Network here
