Getting your hands dirty

Do you fancy making your own home along these lines but want to have a bit of hands on experience. We would like to invite you to join us in our future building projects. Come along, you give us a hand and we'll teach you some methods and tricks for design and construction in the low impact, permaculture style. Not to mention plenty of good food and merriment.

We are currently working on a new home as part of the Lammas project. In addition to building there are similar opportunites to help us setting up permaculture gardens and forest gardens and to learn about many other aspects of self-sufficient living. There will also be opportunities to get involved with other plots and communal facilities of the village including sustainable woodland management, renewable power systems, aquaculture and the village hub building.

Until that happens I am organising occasional events elsewhere. I am keen to help others find their inner builders and also to help people wishing to live low impact lives to do so... i'm open to exciting proposals

Details of dates to visit for volunteer weeks are on the 'courses' page.
