Earthbuilding enthusiasts from around the country chose Waiheke to hold their annual general meeting and visit some of the island's natural'' homes. Professional earthbuilders through to would-be owner- builders attended the Earth Building Association confer- ence at Kina Backpackers in Onetangi. They enjoyed speakers with a wealth of information on different aspects of natu- ral building'', enthusiast Marion Bridge says. Each day a great variety of houses were visited thanks to the hospitality of the owners who gave the 56 attendees their stories and information.'' Conference topics included soil testing, consent pro- cesses, water and waste man- agement, new and old tech- niques in Europe and New Zealand, the affordable Whareuku initiative for rural Maori using flax fibre, the concept of Maori enabling sustainable rather than money-driven decisions, and a report on the lack of earth- quake damage in modern earth buildings in the Christ- church area. Apologies to those who could not be included and thanks to those locals who assisted in various ways,'' Ms Bridge says. Visit www.earthbuilding. org.nz for more information.
