Has there been any cob structures built in this area?
Are there any cob building groups?

I'm sure there are a few groups/permaculturists in the Gatineau River Valley, or near Carp. Personally, I don't know any.

Hello!

I have started an eco-building group for the Ottawa area on facebook... hoping to be able to get something started... or join something already started in this area.

Another Ottawa dweller here. Me and my family have just purchased 1.8 acres south of ottawa and are planning to grow a small food forest and play host to some animals.

We are hoping to meet up with some other area permaculture types to exchange ideas and what have you.


Hope to hear from you.

I am in Aylmer, Quebec. I am originally from Northern Ontario where I farmed and grew for the farmers market.

I am onboard with the local Community Garden. We are growing in small plots around the city. We are in partnership with the local Food Bank.

I would love to talk with others who consider homesteading to be a way of life.

I'm from the Ottawa area and that's where I'm living now. This spring I bought 120 acres near Merrickville with the intention of starting a homestead there. My first project is to build a yurt this fall so I'll have a shelter and can spend some real time on the land in the coming year. Anybody who might be interested in watching or participating in the building process is welcome to PM me. I've never built a yurt before, but have a modicum of handiness.
 
There's no place like 127.0.0.1. But I'll always remember this tiny ad:
