Natural construction course
What is a natural construction
Natural construction uses low-toxicity untreated materials, along with systems that are appropriate for the climate, the site and the intended use. It mainly incorporates natural materials, some of which may be recycled natural materials, as opposed to commercial materials. The focus is to obtain these building elements from a local source – ideally from the construction site itself.
What better way to get your hands dirty than by learning the techniques and stages of natural construction through doing? Whether basins, decorative walls for the garden or bungalows, you will have the opportunity to work on concrete projects during you internship.
You will be trained and supervised by local experts on their site not far from our farm.
