So after recuperating from the trip to Scotland we met with an engineer from Bari, a larger city that is around 1 hour away from the NuArc. A good meal was had and then down to business, Guiseppe and his colleagues from Bari have found this project of interest and and really believe in the whole ethos behind it.
Safe to say he returned to Italy and visited the property for planning and we now have the first draft of plans for the first stages of creating the NuArc Eco-educational and Wellness Centre.
Our first stage will be to renovate the trullo to accommodate the first learner and trainers and for people to experience the true Italian way of life. This will of course come into the budgeting side of the project and so we will very soon launch our first ‘Crowdfunding’ campaign to help raise the capital needed. Alongside this we will endeavour to work with fundraisers to gain the most out of the many EU grants, foundations and philanthropic donations available.
If you or anyone you know has experience in this field please contact us.
We had a recent visit to the amazing place that is The Findhorn Foundation close to Inverness. Walking around I was completely inspired by the different styles and building techniques of the houses there.
The design’s complemented the area and landscape and gave a warm community feel to the place. In the evening a concert was held in the lovely Universal Hall (pictured) which I found out had hot tubs behind it! (not pictured).
There was everything a small village would have, a great shop selling everything from fruit and veg to organic alcohol to mystical products and healthy packed foods. A pizza place, a cafe, venues for singing, eating, and dancing.
I probably wont get back there too soon as it’s a long from Italy but one day I will attempt to stay a bit longer. Thank you Findhorn.
