Collective For Positive Change


Our Mission

Haven Earth Center was created to meet the growing demand for the systematic, earth-focused development of sovereign, self-reliant, organically grown, eco-communities globally.

Through our research, we have found unique ways in which we can rapidly develop ethical projects, with the support of conscious investors and a growing collective of Master Natural builders, Eco-wizards, Bio-technicians, Permaculture and food growing specialists, teacher trainers, and much more. 

Together, we are co-creating and developing amazing models of self-regenerative, self-reliant, eco-communities world wide.

Haven Earth Center is a catalyst for the change we wish to see in the world.

If, like ourselves, you are dedicated to building an earth-centred model of living, we openly welcome you and look forward to making you apart of our collective.

In the end, it is together; in unity and in harmony, that we will co-create the reality we have been dreaming of, and in our hearts, know is achievable.

Closing the Gap


About Us

“A transitional platform, sort of a guide, to allow people to begin relocating from the dense urban (sick) reality, into a nature inspired and focussed community centric model of living, a creative haven”. - Paul Richardson, Founder.

Haven Earth Center, is a process orientated whole systems approach, as well as a physical entity present on each Eco-Community project site. HEC was brought into being, to cut through the blocks usually associated with these types of multi-faceted, sensitive, holistic, nature inspired community projects. We propose through HEC Center, a way in which we can help to manifest these sovereign communities in a more systematic way, yet very much honouring and being guided by conscious, ethical, earth-centred, and earth focused principles - in the process, educating people to be self reliant and whole beings, connected in nature.

We see ourselves as providing a means to close the gap between the land, people and investors, unlocking the abundance which naturally flows when working in harmony with nature and honouring and working with ‘Natural Laws’.

By developing prototype holistic living models (homesteads/communities), that are self-regenerative, and fully supporting and integrative into natural settings, we are taking our first steps towards the creation of our future reality. Also by including food, energy and water independence, and creative ways to up-cycle waste elements, within the same footprint, bio-mimicking nature.

HEC understands very much the power of collaboration, and it is only through coming together that we can solve the problems ahead, and those that are right in front of us.


Paul Richardson HEC

Paul Richardson

Architect and Founder of Haven Earth Center.

Paul studied Architecture in London, UK and graduated in 2002 with a personal focus on ecological, holistic design, and natural materials, studying under some prominent names in the field.

For the past 17 years Paul has worked internationally in the United States, Caucus’s (USSR), Africa, Asia as well as domestically in England, designing, delivering and managing projects, from small timber frame residences and eco-flat pack homes, all the way to billion dollar mixed use developments, resorts and hotels.

More recently, after becoming frustrated with the general lack of progress in the world of commercial construction, towards true sustainability, Paul has turned his focus on developing ‘natural’ building models, models of living that are autonomous, sovereign, and ‘creatively’ self reliant.

Haven Earth Center (HEC) was created in 2017, to share the knowledge and to assist with the transition back to self reliant models of living; bringing much needed ‘know-how’ to people, so that they may gain greater control over their own lives.

Paul is now working with like-minded professionals in Russia, US, Turkey and Africa to develop the ‘Center’ (school / institute) concept, and begin the process of building models, and working on prototype communities on several continents. All with the aim, to shine a light onto the issue of transitioning from our present, destructive ways of living, into harmonious, abundant models of living, both in and from nature.

Paul is excited to finally embark on this journey that is his true path, and is driven and fully committed to making this a reality.

Online Courses for Eco Home Building

Imagine your home as an eco machine with $0 utility bills

Unable to attend the workshop or want additional material to refer back to?

Learn online with our collaborating partner Bio Veda. really starts by enrolling people who are interested in permaculture, food forest forest gardening, practical co-creation, intentional communities, aquaculture and off grid natural water filtration...

Alosha has a similar dream we all sort of want, but it takes effort and work and of course the principal is education.

So no new age trips here but tangible wisdom that can be used immediately!

In a nutshell Alosha's training will empower you to build your own low cost Bio Dome or take your current home Off-the-Water-Grid.
