Wurruk’an is a humble but beautiful body of land, water, and forest in the Gunai district of Gippsland, Victoria. In recent years it has become an inclusive gathering space for people seeking to pioneer and demonstrate a ‘simpler way’ of living based on permaculture principles.

Among other things, we have been running mud-building workshops and growing organic food, capturing water from the skies, learning the skills of self-sufficiency, experimenting with alternative technologies, reconnecting with nature, and moving toward systems of renewable energy. Although these are still early days, the emerging vision is aglow with promise and potential. As a strategy for social change, our small and evolving community is trying to build a new world from within the shell of the old.

The overlapping cultural, economic, and environmental crises humanity is facing can seem overwhelming – can seem like challenges so great and urgent that they have no solutions. But rather than sticking our heads in the clay or responding with despair, Wurruk’an signifies an act of defiant positivity.

A growing network of individuals and communities are forming bonds as they pass through our woods and waters. People come to Wurruk’an to share, learn, teach, and be inspired. Others come to regenerate, heal, or tell new stories of prosperity. More than anything else, perhaps, Wurruk’an is an evolving demonstration project that is seeking to envision and prefigure a world that respects people, place, and planet, while connecting others who are pioneering the same journey.

You can see our progress so far here.

By pledging to Wurruk'an, you will help us establish, develop, and maintain this 'simpler way' demonstration project so that as many people as possible can come to see that the world as it is, is not how the world has to be. 

Every contribution counts. Thank you for your generosity.
