An enlightening experience at O.U.R Ecovillage

From learning how to cob, to farm using the philosophy of permaculture, and how to build structures following the traditional timber framing method. The day spent here was educational and spiritual. Learning to listen to and work with the land and each other to build a sustainable community. In the words of Brandy Gallagher, "By the community, for the community, through the community..."

-Learning to Cob with Pat-

Messy fun with clay, sand, straw and water. Buildings can last thousands of years and are made with natural materials.


-Traditional Timber Framing-

Preparing logs for traditional timber framing by striping the bark and sanding.
O.U.R Ecovillage shows that observation, community, optimism and a naivety can make your deepest visions come true. Thank you to all the lovely people who shared their knowledge, time and kindness.
