Below is important information should you wish to host a workshop on your land

We believe that people everywhere have a basic right to create quality housing for themselves. Help spread this knowledge. If you are able to host a workshop, this is the fastest, least expensive, and most fun way to build yourself a small home to move onto your land or build additional accomodation for Airbnb rental. Imagine having a team of 30 or more enthusiastic builders working on your project! Work becomes play and a lot gets done in a short amount of time. It’s a big win/win for everyone. 

 

Bio Veda Workshops bring people together for an experience of a lifetime. We follow an age-old tradition of building for each other. And as we build, we build friendships, community and skills that free us from the high costs of conventional housing. A Bio Veda Workshop is the most efficient, enjoyable and inexpensive way to build.

In exchange for hosting the workshop you get a free dome! Bio Veda supervises the construction of your AirCrete and Super Adobe dome with up to 35 participants who learn by providing hands-on participation.

There is definitely a lot to gain by hosting a workshop and it requires a lot of careful preparation.
