On December 14th 2007, the members of the executive committee of the FairValley Association visited the Sustainability Institute and the Lyndoch EcoVillage near Stellenbosch. We saw there various methods for alternative ecological friendly sewage treatment methods, and environmental friendly sustainable building materials been used for the houses at the village - adobe bricks, made of earth (soil), clay, straw which been molded and "baked" under the sun without using any poluting ovens. Many thanks to Lisa for the warm hospitality and the valued learning experience.
