Findhorn Eco-Village No Longer Financially Viable
- 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.
Previously the (not for profit) Foundation ran some 200 workshops each year predicated on an underlying spiritual development process which eschews conventional religion.
Membership was not restricted to the confines of the Findhorn site but extended out into communities in the Findhorn ‘hinterland’.
Visitors were encouraged and commercial B&B accommodation was available in the various houses and caravans on site.
Due to the impact of factors attributed to Brexit, energy costs and a devasting fire the community plans to terminate all educational programmes, retrench 50 of its 60 staff and sell off property. Findhorm Bay Holiday Park will continue to operate as will independent businesses on the site.

This house was built from a washback or mash tun sourced from a whisky distillery.
