Peace Valley is a residential retreat which provides space to reconnect with ourselves, each other and nature in a way which honours all peoples and all of nature. Visitors experience simple off grid community living in tents in the bush, experiential learning of permaculture gardening and bush regeneration work, with facilitated activities from ‘The Work that Reconnects’, ‘Dragon Dreaming’ and ‘Theory U’. It is a mix of inner and outer ecosystem regeneration. How we are informs the quality of what we do. Mindfulness and meditation are integrated into the daily routine.
The Peace Valley camp is situated within Bindarrabi Community, a newly forming ecovillage on the New South Wales/Queensland border inland from the Gold Coast and Byron Bay on the Australian eastern seaboard, approximately 2.5 hours drive south of Brisbane.
Our vision includes education of youth to empower them as future leaders, integrating wisdom from indigenous and western modalities alongside permaculture gardening and ecosystem restoration work. We are working with the Githabul Family, the stewards and custodians of the land where the project is situated. An important part of our vision is to shift from the current financial paradigm and Peace Valley is therefore run using ‘Gift Economy’ making it accessible to everyone no matter what their personal financial situation.
Currently Peace Valley is at the end of it’s pilot phase, having built a working camp, support networks, media presence and a small permaculture garden. We work with the Cambanoora Gorge Management Group and Killarney Bushcare doing small scale bush restoration works around the Cambanoora Gorge and Killarney. Also as part of our agreement with Bindarrabi Community we work 6 hours a week caring for their gardens and orchards and assisting with removal of invasive weeds. We hold various events including: ‘Community Living’, ‘Bush Tucker and Weaving’, ‘Nature Connection and Meditation’ among others.
