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

Spring & summer 2017 ~ Ionia Community in ALASKA is seeking 8 dedicated volunteers:  applying finish plasters; installing ceiling boards and natural insulation; building two rocket mass heaters; timber framing bannisters and building big barn doors. They need a cadre of serious natural builders to join our teams, and all levels of experience are welcome. If we are compatible, we hope for a six week – 3 month commitment, beginning in May.
