CREST13 Peace Garden Community Resource Center

The CREST13 Resource Center is located in a region of gum forests in central Victoria, in the southernmost region of the Australian landmass.  The purpose of the Resource Center is to serve as a coordinating information hub for all aspects of the CREST13 project as it proceeds through the critical developmental stage, as well as the various 13:20 garden community developments. In this regard, the CREST13 Resource Center is a function of the Foundation for the Law of Time (FLT) and closely allied to the activities of the Galactic Research Institute (GRI).

In seeking to model sustainable community development, the CREST13 Resource Center is totally off the grid, its energy being supplied by solar panels.  It also manages a large and productive vegetable garden and a number of egg producing chickens.  A variety of fruit and nut trees are becoming established.  There are two dams on the land which provide water for the gardens and for the native animals while the main water supply is through tanks that gather rain. Soon, a tipi will be put up to accommodate ceremonies and a bagged earth dome will provide a natural meditation space.  Also, work is in progress for a purpose-built, strawbale training facility.

The CREST13 Resource Center also hosts small seminars on themes of sustainable development – gardening, building techniques, etc. - as well as informal gatherings of kin. The main building is also home to the CREST13 Resource Center Project Managers, Ishram and Ashani. To contact us please e-mail
