Natural Building helps us connect again to our local natural environment,
to our own intuitive and innate creativity, and to each other.
It helps us to shift from an industrial, and often toxic building process
to one that is affordable, empowering, community-building and life-affirming.
We are co-creating ~ learning to dance in balance with nature
Additional Opportunities around the world
