It has been some time since I last reported on progress in Orania. Be assured that we have not been idle!
A project of this size requires thought, action, meetings, criticism, arguments, and faith! I want to present, without comment, a few snapshots from the last few weeks. But let it be clear: we shall survive. That much has been decided.
Orania has some interesting examples of building methods. This site is due to attract a lot of attention as it sports a novel way of saving energy, water and of using recycled building material. The foundation consists of used tyres filled with soil, and bags full of soil are used as bricks. Google Earthship and catch the fever!
Hugh Tarbet etched his name on a rock in the Orania area during January 1900. Any family left anywhere who might know his history?
Seen at a recent matric farewell with a “fairy tale” theme.
The two local schools have quite a few matric pupils this year, and we wish them well!
