Earth Heart Housing Co-operative is a housing co-operative in traditional listed farmhouse and barns with 20 acres of organic land in Derbyshire. We have 24 residents, including children, as well as ducks, chickens and other animals. The land includes pasture, large trees, woodland, an orchard, gardens and a reedbed sewage system. We use a woodchip boiler for heating and hot water, and buy green electricity. The community uses consensus decision-making via regular meetings, and we also meet on co-op work days and on birthdays and other celebrations. We manage the land for organic grazing for cows and sheep, firewood, vegetables, fruit, herbs and nature conservation. There is a willow labyrinth and dome, and treebogs and outside shower. There are camps during the summer and occasional visits through the year.
