Nevada County Natural Builders
The intention of NCNB is to link natural builders and natural owner/builders in Nevada County, help spread natural building methods, and as a place for people interested in natural building to find workshops, architects/designers, engineers, and builders. If there are visitors to Nevada County with expertise to share, this group functions as a way to get the word out and set up events as well as showcase local talent.
