Eco builders

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the Eco-building week. Tycho and his team are creating an organically shaped dwelling from wood, cane and clay, rocks, lime, sand and straw. Oh, and I almost forgot, some cow manure. It can not be finished in one week and we are open to invite a few more potential Eco builders to help in the coming weeks. Previous experience is highly appreciated but not required. P.S. We also need one or two gardeners.

Artful architecture

eco shelterWe are discussing plans now, together with another foundation called Eco Village Development to create organic natural living spaces on our land. If you want to have a taste of these developments, have an interest in Eco-building and can hold a hammer, there is an opportunity to join a workweek, starting 14th October, where we will be creating a small experimental dwelling, in wood and earth and other natural materials. Send an email soon if you would like to participate.

Shutdown

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAFollowing the lead of the american government I am going to shut down the Osho Garden community. No joking. I finally have to accept the fact that the community that I envisioned has not happened and is not going to happen. That is not a problem but it requires a new purpose for this beautiful place, and maybe new people to carry their mission forward. Suggestions are welcome. Meanwhile, volunteers remain welcome as before, to help with gardening, the olive harvest and, possibly, eco construction. In the picture Tycho, finishing a wooden noise barrier on the great wall of Osho Garden.
