Energy Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - - 8 solar panels are currently feeding back into the power grid. A further 8 panels are to be installed in 2010. We do not have the special room key light extinguishers in place but each cabin is switched off at the main power board when not in use.

Water Rating: ★★★★ (4)
Staff Comment - All water needs are provided on site via spring and rainwater collection.

Disposal Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - There is no council pick-up of waste at ES so we are very conscious of what has to go to the tip! As an artist I collect plastic waste (ie bottle lids) for colour and various packaging for shape and reusability. Much of which is recreated in workshops and costuming over the year. All compost waste goes either to the chooks or to the extensive worm farm for worm casting and liquid usage in the gardens. We have almost given up burning garden waste preferring to chip it and mulch it thus adding to the biomass of the soil structure. There are communal recycling bins available and guests are encouraged to utilize them.

Eco-Active Rating: ★★★ (3)
Staff Comment - This part of the business is waiting an energy injection from my daughter presently doing a masters in Holistic Science via Schumarcher Collage in Devon UK. Her under graduate studies are in Social Ecology and Permiculture management.

Protection Rating: ★★★ (3)
Staff Comment - There is a productive veggie garden in operation at ES most of the year round. Orchard plantings include over 35 semi-tropical fruits from all over the world. Not all garden plants are local but the plantings in areas that are being regenerated back to original rainforest are endemic to the area. I am president of the local Land Care operation, which is working towards stabilizing the local water ways and steep banks.

My partner and I ended up at eternity springs when our original plans for accomodation fell through. As soon as we drove in the driveway we knew out potential disaster had turned into something better than we had imagined. Amandas place is absolutely bursting with life the garden is beautiful, the frogs and birds are plentiful and there is no shortage of bugs. We stayed for three weeks! We spent time in both cubby cabins- one is far more spacious than the other, we had room to set up our massage table in the bigger one with some minor rearranging. The Gabby Rose room is stunning- its very earthy and romantic as has the advantage of an ensuite. We did yoga in the morning up in 'Heaven' skinny dipped at the swimming hole just down the road, ate mangos together in a hot bath under the stars, wrote, did drawings, read books in hammocks. Amanda is fantastic! she might wait on you hand and foot if that is what you are after but with us she was like aunt everyone wishes they had. We had breakfast with Amanda each morning (she bakes bread fresh bread most days!), we shared our stories, played ukeleles together, met locals, ate food out of the garden. By the end of our stay we hardly bothered to put clothes on we were so relaxed. And we actually also managed to get some good work (writing) done! Eternity springs is a beautiful, sensual, creative place. Its not perfect, not everything gets done all the time, there are lots of bugs but that is what makes it so great! We will definately be back!
