Social Justice and Sustainability
‘Sustainable living and design principles are embedded into the TVW framework. TVW draws on
Permaculture, Transition Principles and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human needs.”
We hold a 10 year lease on a Vicroads site in Wallan East. The site has views to the nearby hills and countryside and it is within walking distance of the train and bus station linking Wallan to metro Melbourne and local towns.
PLAN AND DESIGN
We are finalizing the Village design and supporting documents for inclusion in the Planning Permit Application which will be lodged with Mitchell Shire Council in January 2022. We are also talking with companies with a view to selecting one as our building supplier.
BUILD the village
TVW will use pre-fabricated buildings in the Village. We will still have a great variety of volunteer roles from admin to garden so please reach out if you can assist.
