Atop of a mountain in Ste-Beatrix, in the beautiful region of Lanaudière (Quebec), an eco-hamlet is being formed around a common project, the Inuksuk project. It’s the owner and craftsman entrepreneur Benoît Lasalle, a specialist in the construction of log houses, whose the initiator of this eco-hamlet project for recreational and tourism purposes. The project involves the rental of the chalet Inuksuk, an Auberge to promote our activities (via the organization of workshops, conferences, events, …), the construction and the rental of eco small houses (shroom house (in construction since 2016), hobbit house, tipi, yurt, queenzy, tree house, kerterre), infrastructure for operations, recreational and educational activities (permaculture gardening, introduction to herbal medicine, wilderness survival, living like in the old days…), workshops (construction of rocket stoves, bread ovens, corded wood walls, forging, tanning animal pelts…) and some evening festivities (music, performances, screenings).
It is a gathering place, of learning and creativity, and we invite you to join in, in order to participate together in the finishing of the International Youth Hostel, in the construction of new ecological houses, and in the development of the gardens, etc.
