WELCOME TO AVNØ  OASIS

          – an ecovillage project

A place to grow together

- Are you looking for a place to settle down and live life as humans are supposed to?

- Do you crave a place that offers it all: A conscious community, a possibility to create your own green enterprise, a home centered in & around nature and the possibility of inspiring the rest of the world?

Avnø Oasis welcomes you to explore the possibility of becoming one of the first residents of our co-housing community! We have 21 ha of land with 6058 sqm of buildings in a nature protected area directly at the coast.

We are establishing a cooperative housing association (andelsboligforening) for a community that aims to live healthy, grow together, and work “from home” – either in enterprises owned by individuals or co-created by groups of residents under the new paradigm – while inspiring the rest of the world through our example and the teachings of our peoples college (højskole)!

Where?

July 31, 2020, we moved into a wonderful place on Avnø with sea, wood and Avnø Nature Center as our negihbor, between Næstved and Vordingborg on the south of Zeeland in Denmark.
