Findhorn - Ecological Community and Foundation
Findhorn is a spiritual community, ecovillage, and international center for holistic learning. As one of the largest and most successful intentional communities in the world, Findhorn has long been known for helping unfold a new human consciousness for creating a positive and sustainable future. The Findhorn Foundation offers a range of workshops and events at the Community. Some workshops specifically address sustainability. Findhorn's sustainable values are expressed through ecological houses, innovative use of building materials, their living sewage treatment facility, and electricity-generating wind turbines. Sustainable values are also expressed in the community’s social, economic, and educational initiatives. The Findhorn ecovillage is a model for the complex problem of how to transform human settlements into full-featured sustainable communities that are harmlessly integrated into the natural environment. The Findhorn community offers many ways for people to experience the community including seven-day introductions where visitors are introduced to the principles and activities on which the community is based.
