431 Field of Dreams is part of the Eco Village project linked to the Findhorn Foundation aiming to support a low carbon lifestyle for residents and to collectively achieve net zero status by 2030. A small wind farm provides a portion of the electricity needs for the community and the house is serviced by the ecologically engineered wastewater treatment facility on-site. Programmes at the Park Ecovillage generally include meditation, permaculture, sustainable living, and healing practices that focus around the community’s three core founding principles 1) Deep Inner Listening, 2) Co–Creation with Nature, 3) Love in Action. The sky is big, the air is clean and the weather unusually sunny for the North of Scotland. The beach and ocean are a 20-minute walk through the woods and the dunes, or a short bike ride along the road through Findhorn Village. Transport links by air and rail are close by. Regional car share schemes are available locally, and the flat terrain is ideal for cycling. Two organic veg box schemes are in operation and “The Phoenix” shop stocks a wide range of organic and wholefood produce. There is a café on-site and several communal dining arrangements are available throughout the year. There are three meditation sanctuaries within a 3-minute walk from the house. A varied agenda of events and workshops are offered year round at the Universal Hall, Moray Art Centre and other locations in the Park Ecovillage also within a 5-minute walk from the house.
