       Bamboo Building Immersion Course

 This course is designed for those who would like practical natural building skills and hands-on experience working with bamboo. It would suit owner-developers, professional contractors, permaculturists, or those interested to build with regenerative and sustainable materials and methodologies. No prior experience or special skills with bamboo are necessary; only a reasonable level of physical fitness and willingness to learn.
