Mindful Building

21st Century Rural Living

Modern rural living is based on the same technologies of building, transport and communications as modern urban living, with the same environmental consequences.

However, the intensity of technological invasion is less in the country and it is often easier to experiment with alternatives such as bio-construction, organic food production, and animal traction. Experience gained with these in the countryside is already being applied in towns and cities, in green architecture projects big and small, home-based energy production, organic allotments, city farms, horse-drawn carriages and carts for school rounds and refuse collection.

During your stay with us you will have the chance to see a variety of building materials and techniques and to try some of them out. You might also pick up some ideas for gardens and ponds, that you can adapt to your own situation.
