Build Project Description

On the land of Ndanifor Permaculture Eco-village we are going to build a meeting hall, an eco-hut and an out-door kitchen with wood-saving stove. Surrounded by hills, farms and some forest, we have a spring and already functioning farm. Great building soil right here will make things ideal for cob and earthbag construction. Bafut is a large rural area close to the city of Bamenda. We will be using the dry season to build- working hours should be 8-2, then rest or explore. Lots of interesting culture around here. You can find updates about the project on http://betterworld-cameroon.com
