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 and 2023 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 stay in our Big Blue Dormitory tent or (if you can bring one) in your own tent. 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).
