Bellbunya is owned by a not-for-profit association
Bellbunya is owned by a not-for-profit association (also a tax-deductible gift recipient). The Association for Sustainable Communities Inc was established in 2007 as a not-for-profit, environmental organisation building relocalised communities that are socially, culturally, financially and ecologically sustainable. We are committed to furthering an ecologically sustainable future through reverence for the environment, each other, and our interdependence. We are creating and modeling ecological and conscious communities, guided by grace, that liberate and nurture the potential of the wider community through social equity, integrity, courage, transformative growth, care of the planet and collaborative enterprises. Inherent in this objective is an acknowledgment of the importance of intergenerational and intragenerational equity in maintaining a sustainable lifestyle, and of conserving and protecting our biological diversity, as recognised by the United Nations in 1987. The Asociation's major projects include establishing a model 4-bottom line sustainable living centre, incorporating an organic farm, intentional community, a conference and education centre to model best-practice sustainable living. The project embodies eco-agriculture, renewable and green technologies, sustainable tenure, ethical financing and sustainable building methods and designs.
