Clem Rutter at the Costecalde straw build



October 2011

The search for land started, with an answer to an advert in the Magazine  Permiculture ( Unfortunately the land offered there was not suitable, but the bug had bitten and we were smitten with the area, the rural feel, like an old fashioned English landscape in some ways, but much bigger and very definitely French. Within a month we had found a plot, well three plots actually just  ten minutes further along the river Tarn at Costecalde.

Only us though, they were green in the valley!!

There is a road under there somewhere!!
