|An earth bag school under construction in Nepal, before the|
earthquake. This one, a school, built by the local community with design and
training help from Edge of Seven, others shown below.
Critical points are: these are extremely earthquake resilient, energy efficient
and require a fraction of the logistics of importing bricks and cement up the damaged roads, etc.

So skip down a bit if you want to get straight to the earthbag issues, links, etc.
