A week later we met with Cirkelbo to see if it made sense to join forces. It didn’t, so we decided we would be neighboring communities in Vinge, a new town planned by Frederiksund municipality in Denmark, who welcomed eco-villages.
A month later we met Ross Jackson, the founder of Bærebo, a larger sustainable settlement project, planning to provide structure (buildings, off the grid electricity, land to grow vegetables etc) for 3-400 houses or more – in Vinge. It just seemed to good to be true to have such a flow. And it was too good to be true. Bærebo has left Vinge. So has Cirkelbo.
Since April 2018, we have been focusing on establishing our eco-village and a folk-highschool around the old Folk highschool of Skælskør. Our core-group continues to expand and stabilize.
