Natural Building In Nicaragua

Liz Johndrow is a natural builder based in Vermont who offers classes and workshops, some aimed at women. You can find her blog here.

The following photos are from one of her workshops teaching natural building in Nicaragua. I wrote about the topic of building homes in Nicaragua a few months ago in Are Earth Bag Homes the Best Low-Cost Housing Option? I like the choice of materials here: locally available, rather than concrete block. She also teaches in the U.S., so interested people can learn to do what she does, and perhaps take those skills abroad, as she does.

Here’s the new Permaculture-based educational center near Fountain City. I plan to take a couple classes there this year.

I’m looking at this program too at the Ashevillage Institute.
