The seemingly endless search for a life in tune with nature

Around the world, sustainable communities and ecovillages can be found. Within these communities, people often make a choice to build their houses by themselves, utilise recycled materials, adopt solar power and energy alternatives, create composting toilets, grow their own food and collect the water from the creeks. They are living a life of simplicity. Although these people seem to have great ecological awareness, they also feel there is more that could be improved upon to truly be in tune in nature. There appears to be a never ending yearning; one can approach but never truly reach.

Is the longing of western people to truly live in tune with nature an unrealisable aim? This series explores the fine line between romanticism and reality.
