I'm Robert, I have a background in engineering and love travelling, languages & natural living.
I'm building an Eco-village in the beautiful Lebanon mountains within a larger tourist resort to allow visitors to live, learn, grow and build in a more sustainable way.
During 2022 we plan to construct 3 buildings using local, natural or recycled materials (mainly Straw Bale and Wattle & Daub) and set-up a Community Garden and Farmers Market
Come join us to learn and build together!

You'll be working alongside locals and other volunteers, learning Natural Building techniques and the Lebanese / Syrian culture and language.
We want volunteers who have an interest in Natural Building. Who want to learn and physically help build with us. Previous experience is a bonus (carpentry, general construction, earth or stone works, sculpture).

I speak English, French, Spanish (rusty) and conversational Arabic. I'd love to help anyone interested in learning levantine Arabic
You'll stay in one of the comfy wooden 'Wild West' style wagons or Wooden tents on the site (aka Glamping). Cooking and bathroom facilities are provided (along with a food allowance for stays over 1 month). There's WiFi.
The site is on the side of a mountain in a beautiful part of Lebanon. The town of Zahle, with restaurants, shops and bars on one side, open nature and mountains to the other side.
Many opportunities to explore the country and culture. There are many ancient ruins within a 30 min drive (Baalbek, Niha, Anjar).
Various volunteers came from around Europe in 2021 & 2022 and it was all very easy and quick (regarding Covid procedures).
