Hi, we are Francois, Kate, Mateo and Max. This year we are building a Straw bale home, on a very special piece of land in the Waipara gorge. The home is being made with as much recycled, low or no carbon foot print materials.
We are about to start on the earthen plastering stage of the build, and would love help from people interested in this.

We are looking for strong, fit, energetic people, with a real interest in earth building. Tasks could/will involve, making earthern plaster (3 different types), applying plaster on different substrates (including strawbale walls). Working with lime plaster, Helping run workshops, .
Help with cooking local/wild food meals, Preserving wild foods
We have two sweet small huts/cottages, one at the gorge made from straw bale.
And another in waikari in our back garden.
I would love to share cooking meals, I am a cook by trade and sharing great food is important to us.
We cook from the garden and paddock, organic or wild food mostly.
Waipara is a beautiful region with lots to see and do, we love to get to the coast for free diving, and coastal foraging. Head to the hills for a tramp, or sample some delicious wines from down the valley.
