dear Sir
Why is the government not promoting earthbag homes in Haiti .I am a scot/Canadian and would like to build some of these homes in Madam Marie These homes would be given to people that are interested in Permaculture in order to obtain self sufficience by grown their own food, My plan is to make these homes complete with solar energy with water sanitation and permaculture gardens, These homes are cheap to build and can provide labour for the Haitian people and they can earn money to lift them out of poverty, My requested is to obtain land in Madame Marie to complete this project .please advise .contact erldisplayco [at]
