Meet Lindsay, a 63-year-old English woman who had a dream to start an eco village in Morocco — and did just that! Using a 2-brick mold, she and volunteers have created some 10,000 adobe bricks over the past 5 years to create a number of structures in the village including her home, the “boat house,” volunteer accommodations and a “yin-yang” retreat.
The Assilah Eco Village currently accepts between 2-3 volunteers to live and work at the village in 3-week-or-longer stints. It’s a great chance to learn how to build with natural materials like bamboo, cob, straw, and eucalyptus wood. You can request to work with her (COVID-travel-permitting) here.
Enjoy the awesome video interview from FLORB with Lindsay and see her village below!

Eco Village with Four Cob/Adobe Structures
This is the inside of the “boat house” made with wood from some recycled boats.
Here’s the volunteer dorm, next to the cable spool house.
Here’s the beautiful grass-topped “Yin Yang” retreat
Inside there are a number of couches and bunks.
And this romantic bed cave!
Lindsey has done the work with the help of volunteers.
Here’s the bathroom in her home.
And her open-concept living and kitchen space.
