Joining the Community


Over the next five years we will be looking for new people to join us. Initially we would be interested in people with some capital to invest (50K min member loans)  The process of applying to become a director/ member includes the following:

Phase one:
Initial request for consideration to the group.
Day visit and information sharing.
Weekend visit and joining in activities.
Group decision.
Phase two:
Further weekend visit.
Trial period.
Group decision.

The main house at Temple Druid offers a number of potential living spaces for future director/members and renters.

The overall plan is for the majority of the land to be a shared resource and for each household to build their own ecobuild on the land. While this is still in the discussion stage we anticipate that each household will have the same size parcel of land – say ½ acre – on which to build their property and have private space to use as they wish.  Households may chose to live off grid or closer together to share amenities. The property also has 2 large barns that could potentially be converted into living spaces. We aim to accommodate each households’ wishes if possible.  Some thought has been given to applying for the One Planet Development Policy as a community.


Current members have loaned monies to Temple Druid Ltd to purchase Temple Druid and are all directors of the companies. New members will join Temple Druid Ltd and automatically become directors of the company. The expectation is that we work collaboratively together but not everyone has to be involved in all aspects of what we do.

Company Objects as set out in the Memorandum and Articles of association of Temple Druid Ltd are:
