Eco Cat at Findhorn

Eco Cat at Findhorn, Scotland

This evening, the focus on my blog is the Findhorn Community which is based in the north of Scotland near the town of Forres on the Moray coast.

This is an ‘eco’ commnity based on guiding principles of:

  • Spirituality
  • Holistic Education
  • Sustainable Living.

The community evolved from a very modest beginning by a small group living in a single caravan (trailer) who found early success in growing vegetables in a very sandy soil.

Currently the ( not for profit) Foundation runs some 200 workshops each year predicated on an underlying spiritual development process which eschews conventional religion.

Membership is not restricted to te confines of ┬áthe Findhorn site but extends out into communities in the Findhorn ‘hinterland’.

Visitors are encouraged and commercial B&B accommodation is available in the various houses and caravans on site.

The images below some of the houses on site which utilise latest energy saving technology.
