Ecovillage Musings October 2009

Hello Subscribers!

Time flies and we are again delighted to bring you this month’s edition of “Ecovillage Musings!” We have been very lucky to have received some very interesting articles from guest contributors, including news about the IPC 9 from Mugove Walter Nyika, an update of the Ecovillage being developed in Cambodia from Phal Chansathya (a student from this year’s EDE) and an article by Martin Stengel about “Club 99”. There are also some interesting links on a variety of topics for you to browse too!

And don’t forget the two exciting educational opportunities we are offering in 2010! Don’t miss your chance to learn from one of the most lauded Ecovillage/Permaculture designer/teachers around! Why not join us in the beautiful Crystal Waters Classroom for the 2010 Ecovillage Design Education Intensive: Food Production and Design Immersion (6 week residential during our beautiful Autumn) or our Springtime Design and Sustainability Experiential (includes a full PDC)? There are places available on both programs, and we are offering a great early bird discount on both courses! Please visit our website at and for more details of this great offer and information about the programs! Please feel free to contact Max directly on for more information too!

Our next newsletter is already in the pipeline and it is shaping up to be a bumper issue!! However, because of the Christmas and New Year holiday season, we will be sending this to everyone in mid January! If you have any interesting contributions, please send them to us.

We’d love to spread the word about Ecovillages and related topics, so please feel free to distribute this newsletter to friends and colleagues. Better still, why not have them register at our website and they can have their edition sent by express email!

Thanks again for your ongoing support, and we look forward to staying in touch!

with kindest regards
