Narara Eco Village

Stage 1 land - what a view!Such an exciting new phase in life will be happening walking past the Fisheries building for me in the next couple of years. For a long time I have spoken about living in a community one day and the reality is here, being part owner of 63 hectares of prime land with existing buildings and some roads, greenhouses, dam and stream, citrus orchards and a pecan nut plantation I think, haven’t seen that bit yet.

Existing greenhousesOf course being part of group of people with diverse Project manager John near the front entrancepersonalities and agendas will be interesting but give me time and I will soon have them all thinking like me, chuckle…  We have neighbours whether we live in the city or country and work colleagues, friends and family in our daily circle of life. My goodness I’ve met some characters, thank goodness I am normal and easy to get along with, when things are going my way.

Cockatoos in the trees My brother-in-law Kurt can categorise people into colours when he conducts facilitation meetings. Each colour represents a different type of person and within minutes he knows if he is dealing with a red person or a blue person and can then facilitate between them to make sure they hear and communicate with each other. I know details are important to me and am incredibly organised BUT I can be travelling along on my incredibly organised detailed path without looking at the big picture. Next thing I am far away from the desired outcome.

So we need big picture people that are messy, creative, get sidetracked, possible cafe' location ignore the small stuff (cringe) and we need annoying, irritating busybodies so that we can contrast them against the people we really like. Arrogant, noisy, exuberant folk make great sales people which we need and the computer geeks, the hands-on practical, down to earth trades and outdoors types. People to organise food, a café’, look after the wwoofers – PICK ME, PICK ME! I promise not to feed you only raw food.

If anyone would like to join us or if you know of anyone who could benefit and enjoy this lifestyle, please forward on my email. None of us have dreadlocks, honest. But it’s early days so I can’t guarantee it won’t happen!
