Selected Projects
Cascade Cohousing Tasmania
This is our closest existing cohousing project, completed recently. It is an urban project and with legal and planning systems close to ours, possibly someone you want to make friends with!

Halifax Eco-City Project
A very exciting project looking a lot more like going now than it did. The concept includes several hundred homes in downtown Adelaide, but mixed use with shops etc anf fully self contained wastewater and energy wise.

Eco-Village at Ithaca
In New York state a large village is underway comprising several cohousing neighbourhoods adjoining its own horticultural land. Also exciting.

Los Angeles Eco Village
Not sure where this convoluted tale is up to. Judging by their website they have done a lot of good along the way!

Kookabuura Park
Permaculture Village lot development in Queensland, several hundred lots or so.

Crystal Waters
'Worlds first Permaculturevillage' near Maleny in Queensland, Austrailia. Built 10 or so years ago now.

Jarlanbah Permaculture Village?
Their web site seems to keep moving?. Permaculture Village built recently near Nimbin northern NSW.

Sorry, these are a bit unorganised!
