Home » H’ART BEAT of Natural Building Colloquium


September 17 to 19, 2021

The 2021 dates ONLY include hands-on artists and designers gathering and working on a Legacy Project for the Natural Building here at OUR ECOVILLAGE. Given the new COVID restrictions, as of August 27th, facilitators/speakers would not be wishing to be indoors with masks on at OUR school.  

With this we are instead intending to have an outdoor H’ART BEAT gathering of sculptors, mosaicists, painters, woodworkers….or what every your craft may be! As we circle to build the head of the Dragon and the Legacy Project from last years Colloquium – “Honouring Our Elders” in the natural building movement….we will simply have a skillsharing for fun and shared inspiration.

You do not need to be a ‘natural builder’ to come out to this PLAYSHOP. – if you wish to be within the art and culture of eco-arts….then this is a weekend (or even book for a day) for you!!

Land acknowledgment

OUR ECOVILLAGE is situated on unceded Indigenous lands. The Coast Salish Peoples are the guardians of these lands and waters where we live, work, pray, and play. Quw’utsun (Cowichan) is a historical place of gathering and Na’tsa’ maht Shqwaluwun/”one-heart one-mind” for many Indigenous peoples.

OUR ECOVILLAGE is committed to regenerate land and all ecosystems while acknowledging and respecting Indigenous knowledge that ensures thriving for all beings; we call this Permaculture.

OUR ECOVILLAGE is dedicated to continuously educating ourselves and our communities about the history and peoples of OUR bio-region, to assist in decolonization and re-villaging as a path towards peacemaking, from local to global.
