CENTER FOR GROWTH
Ulrika is a training and (hands-on) learning center for personal growth. And, inline with our mission, it is also geared to help stimulate and optimise social, ecological and economical wealth in the region.
The center is still to be build, and as such, we start with a blank canvas!
Our vision is to have the land designed using permaculture principles and the building structures constructed of straw bale.
BUILDING STRAW BALE BUILDING STRUCTURES
I am excited about the (new) possibilities there are constructing with straw bale. Even though straw remains straw, the way and efficiency in which we prepare the bales and build the structures has greatly improved.
For Ulrika, we have 8 different types of structures in mind:
- trainee lodge
- training center
- 3-under-1-roof unit (townhouse style)
- large (market) hall
- large craftsmen workplace divided into 3 units
- art studio
- music studio
- artist-in-recidence cabin
- private recidencies
CALL OUT FOR PARTICIPANTS
We are inviting people to sign-up for participation to help us realize this project. Do you know about project management, are you good at fundraising, does it sound good to help build staw bale construnctions in Asturias, Spain? We love to hear from you!
Ulrika is the spawning ground for ‘living the change’ from where you can go and apply it anywhere in the world.
Come join us. Share it, do it, live it!
