At the Stanford Valley Farm Conference facility, Eco Design hosted a two day natural building workshop with the owners and some unskilled local farm labour. An asbestos clad shed was retro-fitted with walls made of dipped bales, light clay (Leichtlehm) as well as wattle and daub filled with building rubble.

We offer a number of construction & info manuals on our website on natural building technologies which specifically refer to the South African context. The info manual "A LIME DUNG PLASTER RECIPE" has recently been added to the collection.   Click here for more information.

All our manuals are also now available as E-Book downloads. Click here for the E-Books.
