DARREN

I have a long-standing interest in Natural Building Techniques & Materials, Homes made of Earth, Enginerding, and Design in general. In 2018 I worked on ‘The Wheel’, the 4 Person Eco Home at the International Taichung Flora Expo, and got to know Andrew working together on this project. I did my PDC in Thailand in January 2019, and immediately following the PDC, took the opportunity as course coordinator and co-teacher at Daruma Ecovillage.
