My fair lady and I have raised a load-bearing straw bale house in western New Brunswick, Canada, outside of Hartland. Quite rural. Part of the larger South Knowlesville community where land offerings take place for those who are serious about rural living, homesteading, and freedom.
It's so gosh darn loobly in our eyes, the need to share it with others is practically irresistible. We belong to a secret land trust of majesty, mystery, and marvel. People of all stripes. Alchemists and Accountants Alike.
There's something like 8 strawbale buildings in only a couple square kms. A pretty self-reliant scene.
Season two of our build begins Summer 2019. Don't bother paying for a workshop my good fellow, my dear. Come develop your natural building skills alongside us and our colourful community. We're still new at this, but we're going for it. We've been inspired to do this and look to pay the inspiration forward. Housing is a right to reclaim with all our might.
If you're interested, drop a line. Our community accommodates woofers, travellers, and visitors of all sorts.
Squanch that. And squanch this tiny ad:
