Natural Building Colloquium Invitation <http://www.naturalbuildingtexas.org> In the spirit of strengthening and expanding our community of those interested in sustainable building, central Texas invites you to attend a Natural Building Colloquium, October 19-28. Colloquia are gatherings of people ranging from experienced to simply curious who come to learn from each other, to synergize their experience and to remind themselves of their larger vision. Oct 19-28... come one weekend, two weekends or all ten days Quiet Valley Ranch, Kerrville, TX In our case, the vision is of a lifestyle and building culture that could repeat itself indefinitely through successive generations. With careful searching many of us have concluded that the use of locally abundant, unprocessed materials such as earth, stone, straw and native timber provide the structure with which to achieve this vision. Cob, strawbale, adobe, earthbag, leichtlehm (straw-clay), and timber frame are a few of the types of systems that exemplify this philosophy. Natural buildings become pieces of art created with soul and purpose. Permaculture, or "permanent agriculture," helps us integrate human patterns into the landscape surrounding our homes. As originated by Bill Mollison, permaculture is the practice of designing sustainable human habitats by following nature's patterns, integrating ecology, landscape, organic gardening, architecture and agroforestry. There are other important aspects as well: delicious food that nourishes the body, music, laughter, creativity, families of all sorts, eager minds and willing hands. We seek to create homes that comfort the body and lift the soul. If you possess or aspire to any of the above, we invite you to join us this fall.
