We are a familly with 2 kids. We have self-built our straw bale house, first step of a permaculture farm.
It was a participative building. We have choosen to build with volunteers/helpers to share our experience, eco-builders techniques, people meeting.
Regarding permaculture the project is born in 2014. We have started gardening, tree planting and a lot of experiments ! Our objective is self sufficiancy for our 4 ppl family and after that selling extras. Just a few experiments (keyhole garden, strawballs gardening, source water and rainwater harvesting, hedge planting, energy and water self-sufficient...).
We are located near La Réole (33190), train station, 60km from Bordeaux (airport) in south france.
We propose help in starting your COB project (plasters, earthen floor, walls...).
