Life should be fun and rewarding for everyone!

When we work together to sustain our lives with organic food, clean water, safe housing and love, abundance and peace will be our reward!

a permaculture village for artists...

Creature Conduit Sanctuary will be a fairly complex ecovillage for artists of all disclipines.

Some highlights...

Growing food all year with climate controlled aquaponics greenhouses (meaning we'll grow both food and fish without the use of fertiliser or chemicals).

Also growing food by way of food forest and hugelkultur walls.

Disaster-resistant, energy-efficient dome-shaped structures (can't be blown away, washed away, or burned. Can even survive earthquakes to an extent - can't do much about it if the ground opens beneath it).

The community will have a completely organic farm and will be self-sustainable.
