This project will enable a volunteer to learn and experiment with different sustainable construction techniques. You will build sample structures to demonstrate to visitors, volunteers and school groups the functions and usefulness of recycled and natural materials in construction, including “eco-bricks” (unrecyclable plastic sheets stuffed into plastic bottles), glass bottles, cob and rammed earth.
(Shown in picture is a retaining wall made of tyres rammed with earth and bottles at a Brighton earthship)
Skills: None required, as you will be supported by the eco-construction coordinator, though basic construction skills are welcome, and a desire to undertake own research and learning is a must.
Duration: 3 Weeks – 1 month
