LUSH Canada makes Meeting Hall project reality

Volunteers and board of BWC

November 1st marked the beginning of the construction of a Meeting hall with kitchen at Ndanifor Permaculture Ecovillage.

Everyone at BWC is excited to see this building come to reality and we wish to thank and acknowledge LUSH Charity Pot for funding this project.

The building will be built with ecological building principles of local materials and climate responsive design. The kitchen will feature an improved cook stove and bread oven.

We draw on the skills of local builders and craftsmen and women in building a dry stone foundation, earthen walls and details with raffia bamboo.

Volunteer builder and architect Elke Cole is on site to oversee the construction which is scheduled to be completed in April 2015.

You can follow our building progress on Facebook
