Welcome to Earth Ways!

Earth Ways welcomes you to the website of Rubha Phoil, a young nature-based permaculture community on the Isle of Skye.

We’re Crowdfunding/Crowdlending

Two years ago we borrowed 90.000 from kind people like you to help finalise the purchase the land. Many have allowed us to keep the loans for a second year. Over the past two years, we have already paid back £39.500. Our community business has been flourishing and growing fast over the last 3 years. Though having to repay £39.500 in two years while also having to invest in the infrastructure is a little too fast for us. Our reserves are depleted. We need £10.000 to restock our reserves to be able to pay lenders back in an eventual urgency and we need an additional £10.000 to build a new showerblock. We need that showerblock to be able to grow our business so that we can repay our loans faster and invest more into the community and it’s members.
We need £20.000 in total.

We had a fantastic 4 month summer course

    • This summer Odilia, Cesaria and Lea joined Rubha Phoil to learn about permaculture, nature connection and creating regenerative culture. Learning about community building has inspired Lea and Cesaria to join the Rubha Phoil community and Odilia to join a community closer to home.

You can read the testimonies about the summer at the bottom of this page.
