Eco-building courses
The Live Lightly eco-building courses have been again a great success in 2015. We have involved 9 people in learning new techniques, and have also engaged around 15 volunteers in experiencing what low impact living is all about. We have built a roundhouse, part of a cob walled garden, and made some walls for an existing building from cordwood & straw, with both lime & clay plasters.
