  • Description

    Description

    Hello world travellers... we are looking for help from people who are interested in learning to make & build with mud bricks.
    We are building a mediation space out of mud bricks and cob- you will be involved with everything from making the bricks to the full build process.

    The 100 acre bush property is in the lower Hunter valley NSW and is a very peaceful valley, backing onto National Park lands- a home to a bounty of native fauna.

    We value living in harmony & reciprocity with the land.
