As a leading building and training social enterprise specialising in natural materials use, we provide exceptional straw bale building, design and training services across the UK, Europe and beyond. We are the UK lead partner in the acclaimed European pre-fabricated straw panel system Ecococon.

We are consultants, designers, educators, trainers and contract builders, dedicated to expanding knowledge and passionate about promoting the use of local materials, in the creation of healthy, high-performance and low carbon, sustainable spaces.

Our core team works with a network of partners to design and construct buildings from hotels and health clinics to social housing and two storey load bearing straw bale buildings on rammed car tyre foundations - most aspects of which have been run as live, on-site training courses.

Our portfolio includes examples of the low impact, energy efficient, durable and beautiful buildings.
