KoHub and Lanta’s Sustainability Academy (ASA Lanta) have joint forces and combined their powers to launch a new initiative: Sustainable Saturdays! The first edition kicked off last week and was a great success.
A group of KoHubbers visited ASA Lanta for a 3 hour hands-on ‘Natural Building Workshop’ through which we learned about sustainable building in one of the most stunning places on the island (see their website for more info: https://asalanta.com).
We first went for a little tour around the institute and checked out the earthen houses, the bamboo teahouse and shop, the natural spa, the treehouse and food forest. After that we got muddy, creative and had fun whilst learning and helping to create eco-friendly buildings in Lanta’s rainforest.
At the end of the session, we were treated to some yummie fresh fruit and the rewarding feeling of seeing the effect of our hard work.
Special thanks to Daniel Attenborough for letting us use some of his photos
