A VIRTUAL EVENT!
SEPTEMBER 17th – 19th, 2021
* Access to 2020 session recordings included in your 2021 ANBC Registration! *
The Natural Building Colloquium is a virtual gathering for natural building enthusiasts: builders, teachers, professionals, and those who are passionate about natural building. It is a place to exchange the latest developments in practical applications and technology and share ideas with other people in the field. We will look at where the natural building movement stands in regards to professional support, permits, and finding qualified builders.
Historically this gathering has been held all over the world, and in Canada has been held at OUR ECOVILLAGE – the “Lawful Permaculture” Demonstration Site & Education Centre. With an immersive experience and wide range of natural buildings that are cob, straw bale, rammed earth, earthship/tire, living roofs, or rubble trench foundations and are all permitted and engineered…there are online and on-land tours of the Demonstration Site by architects and engineers during the Colloquium (COVID restrictions permitting).
**Full attendance of the Colloquium on-land will be considered by August 1, 2021 and postings will continue on the this website page and all social media channels as changes occur in the ability to travel and gather. STAY TUNED…and for now feel free to jump in to the online registration (and upgrade as opportunities change for in person) and also receive the full 2020 event as online portal membership for FREE.
Whether you are a green builder, regulatory official, designer, or home owner/builder, this (un)conference will open the doors for whole new ways of understanding ecological design and building.
