Are you interested in the natural building movement and sustainable building techniques? If so, here is a conference for you!
What: "Building as if people mattered" Conference
When: July 23-26, 2009
Where: O.U.R. Ecovillage, Shawnigan Lake, BC

House building has developed from traditional, vernacular, handmade to industrialized, mechanical and highly specialized. The natural building movement brings back to our awareness what we have given up in that process: the personal investment in building one’s home, the expectation of a building that is to scale with human need rather than want, the respect for people and place.

Join us for a weekend of discussion, demonstrations and connection and explore together what is possible. We invite you to send proposals for presentations. Bring digital images of your recent work and we’ll create an evening of showcasing our work.
Following the conference, all are welcome for three days of related field trips in the region.
Please see the attached invitation letter. For more information and registration, please visit http://nbnetwork.org/events/baipm. Also, for more information about O.U.R. Ecovillage, please visit http://ourecovillage.org/.
Questions can be directed to [email protected]. Also, please write to us if you have a presentation or idea to offer.
