Bristol Eco Village

On 17th April 2010 around 45 people occupied a piece of unused land in Bristol, England to set up Bristol Ecovillage, a Center for Alternative Technology. By the end of the day they had established themselves and even had built raised planting beds. The following is a good film that shows what happened on what was a great day.

So get down to the site and help out. directions here
The guys in Bristol have recently seen off an illegal eviction attempt within the first four days. They now have a court date and their future on that particluar site hangs in the balance. So If you live near Bristol
Keep an eye out for disused brown field sites, abandoned walled gardens, disused and fenced off peaces of woodland or any large empty peace of land that fits the following requirements

Boundaries - Some form of barrier around the site with a gate to provide security for the village residents.

Decent Soil - We wish to grow our own food so cultivatable soil is preferable

Space - Anything from the size of a football pitch upwards.

Urban - The location must be in an urban location. Bristol Eco Village is an urban community based project. Our aim is to create a family friendly space for the local community to enjoy. We believe that more can be achieved within an urban setting than a rural one because it exposes a great many more people to our ideas and way of life.
