Rammed Earth – CPD Training

One of the first organisations in the west country to take sustainable building seriously was the Genesis Centre in Taunton, which at that time was ahead of its time in terms of both its own construction and its efforts to network such ideas across the country, bringing in professional bodies and the construction industry.

Learning From The Land was asked to put on a continual professional development day for staff at the centre, where they could get hands-on with a range of sustainable building methods. Here you can see the team building a demonstration wall from rammed earth. It is amazing how solid soil with no treatment of added material can be simply using hard labour!
