“This short film wants to be an inspiration to everybody on this planet to build with local and natural materials, to empower themselfs and share the beauty and joy with everybody around them!

*WATCH TILL THE END* 🙂

Through this video I share with you some impressions of the 3 weeks intensive natural building workshop 2016 at Terra Alta – Off the Grid Educational Center in Portugal.

In 3 weeks we have participated in a roundwood timberframing workshop with the wonderful and skilled facilitators Alan Ueland and Dominique Kruger & an earthen plastering, rocket mass heater building and light clay wall structure course with the two
enthusiastic and lovely teachers Eva Wimmer & Joshua Roxendal.

Vision of Terra Alta:
To empower those seeking skills of regeneration, to let the flows of life carry symbiotic energies, and bring forth a new culture that reflects the principles and ethics of Permaculture and other philosophies. Harmony and balance is manifested from the practical aspects of Permaculture Design education all the while developing healthy social relations and individual well-being, nourished by good food, music, art, celebration and Love for Life!

01) Bernie Sanders Wiped the Floor With Graham & Cassidy at CNN’s Healthcare Debate


“After learning that their plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act had been dashed once Susan Collins announced her opposition to their bill, Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy had to go on national television to debate the merits of their failed bill. They faced off against Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar and got absolutely annihilated. Since their own bill failed, they tried to debate the merits of Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare for All’ bill—thinking they’d have a leg up on the Vermont senator—but it couldn’t have gone worse for them.”
