Brandy Gallagher-McPherson is the Exec/ Director of OUR (One United Resource) Ecovillage Development team which is a 25 acre demonstration sustainable community on Vancouver Island, British Columbia in Western Canada. Brandy has a lot of experience living in community. She lived with her parents in an intentional community in rural Canada for her first 10 years and during that time was also very close to a First Nations (Native American) community and its strong sense of "community". She brings that experience to her OUR Ecovillage.

The notion of "Ecovillage" is really just a concept and intention of sustainable living including sustainable relationships and connection with the land. We know, in fact, that relationships with our space and our environment is our survival. She sees things from a place of possibilities and looks at the ecovillage movement as a way of putting back the pieces we've lost and that we are in great need of to make a whole and sane world. An "ecovillage" can take any form from a rural kibbutz to a downtown urban situation and anything in between. It is usually designed within a context of a full featured life style. A very useful and successfull project that others wanting to do an ecovillage can learn and profit from is that OUR Ecovillage has taken on a legal re-zoning package and worked through two and a half years of full-featured package for an ecovillage design. This is a precedent in Canada for working hand in hand with authorities. OUR Ecovillage also has a full program of work and classes and gives a class called Topia, which means "place or space", sustainability and a 3 month residential program in natural building with teachers from many parts of the world. There are residential programs in permaculture and sustainable community design as well. Gallagher-McPherson speaks of the global ecovillage movement and network which includes over 600 ecovillages and intentional communities.
