Currently we have three buildings near completion (Clinic, Education Hall, and Kitchen). Building will start again in March 2013 and we hope to finish these buildings well before the end of the year.
We have the following still to build which we are currently raising funds for:
- Large accommodation wing
- Composting toilets
- Animal houses for cows, chooks, and pigs
- Methane digester that uses animal manure to produce methane that provides gas for cooking in the kitchen
- Central courtyard and driveway
- Stormwater management
- Solar power system
