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 and spiritual growth, (2) social sustainability, (3) economic sustainability, and (4) environmental sustainability.

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

We have developed various processes and structures to enable us to function effectively and to continue to learn and grow – both as a community and as individuals.

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