    Description

    Hi! We are just starting to create an eco-village and festival space on a 130 acre farm in the Kaipara district. The first project is a hexagonal compressed earth brick house.

    Come and have some fun in the mud and learn about earth brick building, also we are within the Auckland boundary so it's better if you're also coming from within the auckland boundry.

    A little about me and the space here.

    I enjoy spending a lot of time in nature and doing things like: meditation, hiking, skiing, cycling, cooking and yoga. I'm a builder and engineer by training.

    Here we are creating a place for concious festivals to take place and to have an eco-village and permaculture farm.
