Our Community

Holistic Community living

Community farming goals of Noosa Forest Retreat  begin with a  holistic or integral vision of life with a  central value of treating the land and all life on it as sacred; exploring  organic, permaculture  and more recently syntropic farming to do so. With our organic, permaculture farming, involvement in local permaculture, biosphere and Environment Council organisations and online education we are not only growing nutritious food, but we are supporting a healthy community starting with the earth and for all creatures in and on the earth including us.

Like it is said by Masanobu Fukuoka, “The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and evolution of human beings.” Along with sustainable organic & permaculture farming, we practice yoga, Ayurveda, massage, and a holistic lifestyle following “simple living, higher thinking.” The goal of our Holistic community on the Sunshine Coast is to set up sacred space and support structure on the Coast for individuals that are ready to commit to explore themselves and there place as part of the environment; whether it be music, literature, art, gardening, or whatever your interest may be. We are a grassroots holistic community with open hearts and welcome all committed to these interests. For information on our integral living philosophy see our philosophy page.

With our online education, amongst our residents & greater community we continue to develop and aim to inspire individuals to transform there lives and take up holistic/ecological/syntropic living principles.
