Natural Building Colloquium
Hosted by O.U.R Ecovillage.
Welcome to this gathering where we will foster connection, share ideas, show techniques and nurture and celebrate the natural building community! In the tradition of the natural building movement we invite you to O.U.R. Ecovillage on Vancouver Island for four days of inspiring presentations mixed with fire circles, good food and time to (re-)connect.
Natural builders of any level of experience will find this a great networking opportunity. Even if you’re just moving into this occupation you ‘re very welcome. Owner builders, developers, planners, tradespeople : if your heart is yearning for more living, connected design and practice this may be for you as well.
Included in the colloquium are many scheduled events along with great ways to network with and learn about other individuals in the industry, for example:
