09 Jul Sólheimar Eco Village offers support to Cauldron Community
“Sólheimar Eco Village would like to offer any support it can to the Cauldron Community Eco Village project and create educational links between our communities and also therefore between Iceland and Ireland in promoting sustainable living” Guðmunder Ármann Pétursson (Sólheimar Director)
The CC visit to Sólheimar was simply inspirational. Turf roofed buildings blending into stunning surroundings of rolling hills and snow topped mountains, dedicated workshops for soap making, weaving, painting, wood-work, a film theatre, a state of the art Eco education centre, extensive guest accommodation, Turf roofed homes for residents, a cafe, a shop selling eco village crafts and produce, a large canteen, office space, a pond, a geo-thermally heated swimming pool and jacuzzi, massive green housing areas, massive polytunnel area, permaculture garden, elf house, ornate carvings, reed bed eco sewage system, woodland area, wormery, herb drying room, dedicated community church and a very warm welcome. This is an Eco Village that has achieved an optimum level of success-after many years of hard struggle. Awesome!
The Cauldron Community is delighted to have established good relations with Sólheimer and we hope that a cross-pollination of ideas and visits will continue.
