I just stumbled across ‘dirt between lightbulbs’ – a couple of guys traveling across the states making short films about sustainable living and natural building. It’s a shame I didn’t find them earlier as they could have stopped by while they were in Moab, Utah!

“Our mission is to meet interesting luminaries – those visionaries who lead the way in sustainable living, who have etched out a way of life that brings joy to their soul. We hope to meet wise men and women who live sustainably in houses made from affordable materials – such as mud, straw, earth bags, old tyres and retired shipping containers.

Some homes will be rectangular, some geodesic, and others might resemble a bee hive – but they all have something to teach us about how we can live with nature. They might generate their own electricity, capture their own water, and/or grow their own food supply – but they will most definitely have interesting stories and philosophies to share.”
They recorded this interesting interview with Ianto Evans from Cob Cottage Company.

Hi
I am in proses to build a skill center where I am teaching the local community alternative live skills.
like cob building and permaculture
I came across a documentary called “First Earth – Natural Building”
There was a clip on Ghana where they mention some tree ( something like Watawat) to strengthen the mud floor.
If possible, can you please give me more details.
Thanking you
Kind regards
In L&L
