Last year´s participant comment "The course was superb/perfectly organized and planned. All was scheduled into detail, with timetables for the attendents to see what we were going to do which day. Amazing to see how ALL materials were on site and could be used, as was all sorts of equipment, tools, machines… The course started everyday with a clear explanation about what the subject of the day would be and the theory behind it. A lot of hands on was involved, which makes learning natural building much easier, because it gives the group the opportunity to practice all! It was lovely to built a variety of things with a small group of people and learning all about the different ways of building naturally. It is great to see the examples of natural built projects on the site, a very inspiring situation! The handout with all the information about the course and the techniques is very professional and usefull. On top of it all the catering was amazing, plenty of great food supplied by the team and a very good routine for helping out doing dishes and things like that
 
All in all… a perfect course which gives to opportunity to learn the basics of a wide variety of natural building techniques, a lot of general knowledge to be shared, loads of books about all kind of natural building to look into, the possibility to get a lot of questions answered… very well done!"
