100% renewable energy

The community centre is run on 100% renewable energy through our 7.2kva solar panel system and by buying wind farm energy.

Exploring ways of alternative sustainable living – since 2008

Bellbunya eco-community was established in 2008 to explore ways to create a re-localised and sustainable future. Our “4-bottomline” approach includes: (1) personal growth, (2) social sustainability, (3) economic sustainability, and (4) environmental sustainability.

Caring for the Earth

Our approach to caring for the Earth uses permaculture principles, including organic growing, bushland regeneration and Syntropic farming.

Team building, conflict resolution & more

We employ a range of group process skills and techniques for group facilitation, collaborative decision making, team building, conflict resolution and project management.

Learn & Grow

We are developing processes and structures to enable us to function effectively and to continue to learn and grow – both as a grass roots permaculture community and as individuals.

We support sustainable enterprises that develop the healthy interplay of relationships with our environment and each other.
