Annual ONTARIO Natural Building Conference

Each spring, we host a two day Natural Building Conference and Annual General Meeting at the amazing Camp Kawartha centre, on beautiful Clear Lake near Lakefield Ontario. 

Our annual conference takes place over two days and is chock full of amazing presentations! It is great opportunity to learn from leaders in the field and connect with others who are interested in the natural building movement. Each day is packed with presentations, break-out sessions, networking opportunities and great local meals!

Join us for just a day or better yet the whole weekend! We have lots of registration options and rustic cabins offer economical on-site accommodation.
