    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Kerterre is the really good knowledge for the people who have dream to build an innovative house without too much construction and no harm to the nature . Its a great knowledge to learn even for my self when i was learning it but I paid 600€ for this knowledge . But with us this can be free in exchange . Except this we cook together and my husband is Indian and he is really good cook.
