There would be no EAR without a community of builders, makers, and shakers.
EAR is a non-profit association living and breathing the energy and commitment of the community behind it. Emmentaler woodcraft experts rebuilt our roof, EAR-friends helped dismantle the chimney and a Cuban artist rebuilt a wall. A group of art-students renovated the kitchen, and a botanist jump-started the yard into a growing laboratory for degradability.
More and more people join the feeling of a common home. A place to rethink and re-tune towards a healthier you.
These are our pEARs, backEARs, and hEARos.
Your support will keep our plumbing flowing, our heating running, and our bellies full. Join as a Patreon to support EAR monthly or make a one-off donation via PayPal or Twint.
Whatever you choose, the funds you channel us will be put to use.
