Natural Building

Flashback to Mexico, 2016 when I was had first contact with buidling with natural materials.

The mediums was cob, a mix of sand, clay and straw and remains my favorite building technique to this day.

I documented the experience in a zine I had at the time which was my collage-travel-log of woofing in central America.

Soon after I met Jona who taught me a lot more about building with Earth & many other things. Together we embarked on a long long journey which ever continues!

~2019 — installing windows and using recycled bottles in cob walls.

After a few year break we began again to build with cob to improve the wood stove we use to heat our house – it is still a work in progress but you can see how it is going::

Have you ever built with cob? Let me know about your experiences in the comments 💛☀️

Garden Journal :: and some personal notes too

In the search for land of our own …

… we have discover new places & landscapes.

One such place is a magical trail to another little village.

Previously we thought you could only get there by the highway but it turns out the longer we live here the more alternative, bike-friendly routes we find.

Walking through the woods with a friend plus her hija & hijo. She is also on the search for land so we sometimes search together.

In the garden ::

I have been poting plants to prepare for fall – repotting herbs that have outgrown their original pot and planting greens that do well during the colder months.

Garlic, calendula, lentils, and other random plants of the season are going into the ground with compost and a thick layer of leaves as mulch.

happy gardening – chloe calendula
