After building an earthen home and hosting building workshops in Slovakia, we'd like to continue teaching this important and amazing life skill in Portugal.

We welcome you to join one of our workshop days in a beautiful food forest garden (Falfosa
, near Loule), where you will experience building with earth, stone and wood, the most ancient building materials.
We are currently constructing an outdoor kitchen and a children's playhouse
