For several years Natural Homes has hosted two Facebook groups, 'Talking Natural Homes', where we discuss natural building and 'The Kitchen Table' where we chat about natural living skills. Neither group included issues that many are interested in learning about, that is, small scale farming, woodland management, off-grid technologies. We're happy to say these topics are now offered by the Permahome Group (click below) bringing all these together as a living system. A Permahome is a whole house approach to sustainable living where materials, energy, water, waste and food production are all taken into account in the design of the home. The Permahome Team (and guests) will be writing articles for publication on www.naturalhomes.org which will for the most part contain technical, hands-on information about sustainable living. These will range from natural building to food forestry and so forth. You are very welcome to join...

The quality and properties of the honey depend on the flowers visited. Honey, which is mostly made up of sugars, contains only traces of vitamins and minerals, but it does contain disease-fighting antioxidants.
Honey has long been known to have anti-bacterial properties and is used in wound dressings.

Antioxidants are the greatest hoax of this decade. Only mitochondria create so much radicals that if you only ate antioxidants for a year, you would eliminate like a day of production. Eliminate the production of radicals, because that's the only realy effective way to fight them.

The prickly pear's flavour is like a tart raspberry and the blossoms of the bud make a good wine.
Compared to other fruits and vegetables the prickly pear is very high in Magnesium at 85mg/100g.

This is an infinity house inspired by the lemniscate, the symbol of infinity. The walls are made from clay, straw, sand, pumice, colihue (a frost-tolerant bamboo) and wood chips.
This is Ezekiel and Violeta's clay home in Argentina. The home was designed using elements of sacred geometry.

This 600 sq.ft (56m2) cob home was the first fully permitted cob house in Canada. Cob is a mixture of straw, clay and sand with water.

These shelters can be built for as little as 500 Euro. Between April and October 2015 Evelyne will be building these tiny bubble homes all over France and she's looking for help.

Nine natural building methods with another nine if you click on button number '2'. No matter where you live, or what natural resources are available, you can build a natural home.

Colin and Féile's home is a beautiful combination of cob, straw bale and natural edge wood plus a lot of their time and devotion. Well worth a visit on one of their open days or workshops.

Think about a holiday in a natural home. Follow the link to our group where you will find new listings.
A good way to decide what type of natural home you would like to build is to spend some time living in one.

The Wild Black Cherry. When the fruit is fully ripe it is edible but the leaves are highly toxic releasing hydrogen cyanide when crushed.
The wild black cherry blooms in late spring. By midsummer the cherries are ripe and ready to pick.

If you live in a hot climate, being underground is a good place to be on swelteringly hot afternoons. This is a cave home restored using the 6th of the 12 permaculture principles, 'produce no waste'.
This cave was abandoned but is now in use again as a dormitory for visitors to the permaculture project Bustan Qaraaqa.
