A Little about Me

Hi there, my name is Oraya Rogers. I have a Dream. My dream is to create a beautiful project and to open an Art Gallery in 2030 for my 50th, showcasing a life's work and leaving a legacy for others to enjoy and benefit from. I am an artist and I have a passion for Wholesome Building, I believe environment is everything, and I love people and would love to make a positive contribution. Starting from scratch, I am inspired to create a life where I don’t compromise my morals and can give something back, by achieving a beautiful environment where others can learn and share. To find out how? Join me on my journey, and in my daily Diary’s as I prove that I can achieve the dream, and leave My legacy;– An educational center for everyone who is interested in natural building, including a cross section of actual Eco buildings that will provide training and housing for trainers for further Eco building education programs. An Art Gallery and community café, providing a local attraction and hopefully inspiring experience. Farming natural building materials for local business. Furthermore, I am taking the brave step alone, moving country, integrating and building the dream from scratch with zero budget, so any and all help and advice would be amazing.
