We are in the early stages of developing a permaculture based mini community (approximately 4-5 families eventually). We've almost complete the strawbale cottage and the tiny house... and now we're working on the main strawbale house which will be the largest building on the property. We're looking for help on this interesting natural building, as well as general help around the grounds (lawn mowing, planting, weeding, landscaping, etc). Helpers can learn a variety of natural building techniques including cob, earthen plastering, tadelakt, light earth infill for internal walls, strawbale construction and more. (Depending on the dates you are helping and what we're working on at that time)

The top story of the house is well on it's way to completion and setup with a temporary kitchen. There are comfy beds up there and this is where our helpers will be staying. There's also a warm outdoor shower by the strawbale cottage. Helpers can also stay in the strawbale cottage if it's free at the time. It's beautiful :)
