Welcome to this group of Natural Building enthusiasts, professionals, and fans.  All members are welcome to hold meetings ranging from building cob ovens in community gardens, to helping build strawbale houses, to watching and discussing natural building videos and taking natural building tours throughout the midwest. Why? Because there are very real opportunities to learn Natural building technologies both through dialogue and study and through hands on practucums, and your interest can become part of your life. 

If you have a natural building project that you'd like help on, simply schedule a meetup and watch the support roll in.  If you want to post a workshop to help defray the costs of your natural building project, or to further your natural building business, you are welcome to do so here as well.  If you want to ask the community a couple questions about natural building regarding the concept, the culture, the techniques and the technicalities, the risks, the benefits, the discussion board and the ideas board are here to help you explore.  Join in the fun, join in the journey, and find empowerment through experience and learning!
