As i was sick on the eve of the trip to Cloughjordan , i missed out on a day that i regrettable missed. It took me this long to write a blog on it and naturally i had to surf the web, ask other students and read magazines about cloughjordan.
Cloughjordan ecovillage lies on 66 acres of land. What are Ecovillages ? , From its website, Ecovillages are urban or rural communities of people who strive to integrate a supportive social environment with a low impact way of life. To achieve this, they integrate various aspects of ecological design, permaculture, ecological building, Green production , alternative energy and many more.
The village aims to offer a place where it can down-size the institutions that provide housing,waste disposal, food etc.
The people of cloughjordan are unique that they each share a common goal , They know eachother extremely well unlike a normal town or village. They are very close. The people are very upbeat and positive even in these hard times were going through. The live a sustainable lifestyle and their immense communtiy spirit enables them to achieve many goals.
Maybe someday they can change it from an Ecovillage into an Ecotown , are someday maybe even ECOCITY!
