Earthbag Construction in the Philippines

Hello,

I will be relocating to the Philippines, and would like to know if anyone in this forum has knowledge or been involved in this alternate form of construction in the Philippines.

I would thank anyone in advance for any responses.

Regards,

Marc

as far as i know, there are provinces here in our country that use earthbag for construction of buildings like schools and clinics.

Maria Flor,
Thank you for that info.
I am looking at Alaminos area to relocate with my Flipina wife and two children.
I believe the earthbag type construction has been used in the Philippines for their fishpan wall construction, but I have not seen much activity in terms of housing.
My idea is to develop a small aquaponics system using the earthbag construction for the fish tanks and the plant troughs.
If you know of any contacts in the Philippines involved with this construction type, please inform me.
Thank you again Ms. Maria.
