Earthbag Building in Vanautu — 4 Comments

  1. Hi, l’m very interested to read about how you are building with earthbag. I found out about it last year here in Australia NSW Newcastle. I did a weekend workshop where we built a wall for the Newcastle Community Garden.
    Then I organised a working bee building a wall with friends and the teacher(Rebecca Whan) at my own place but the soil was not so good. Rebecca said she could tell by the scent that the soil was too high in organic matter and she was right. But I have learnt a lot now.

    I’ll be travelling to Vanuatu 5th May 2013 and leaving the following Sunday. My sister will be getting married there on the Sat, that’s why I’m going.
    I’d love to help if I can?
    It sounds like a great idea to build earthbag accommodation and Eco-tourism. I know I’d rather stay there!
    I’m only in Vanuatu for one week – can I help at all?
    Kind regards,
