Besides organic farming ecological construction and building design have a crucial role in a sustainable lifestyle. By using renewable materials, low-impact architecture and construction we take one step ahead towards recreating a long lost symbiosis between humanity and Mother Earth. Using renewable resources such as dirt, sand, stones or hay minimizes environmental impact.
In 2013 we had our first ecological construction workshop, but we have been practicing this type of building since 2010. The houses on the farm were built with ecological methods and materials. We use mainly cob, straw and wood to renovate the buildings, and sometimes we recycle old glass, ceramics or metal as well. We have ecological construction projects going on from May to September, you are welcome to come and get yourself a hand on experience at the Organic Art Ranch. During 2017 we have several projects going on involving ecological construction.
