Heartwood Natural Building

"Heartwood is a fantastic place to learn about natural building and running a smallholding, from people who have a vast understanding of processes involved and great teaching skills.

An excellent model for community living, based on permaculture principles. Build camps here are the best I've been to with nights sat around the campfire and trips to the beach, one visit to Heartwood and you will surely want to go back!" Nicole


I stayed at Heartwood three times and I'm just sorry I haven't been able to go more often. Staci and Richard quickly became friends and I felt welcomed into the whole community from day one.

Heartwood is a beautiful place and a learnt a great deal about natural building in my time there - from other volunteers, Richard and Staci and the other people living and working there.

I can't recommend it enough! Chris
