About Kyle Young
I met Kyle in 1999 about a year after I purchased my land in Arivaca. Kyle has been involved with organic farming & natural building for over 20-years. He is committed to using locally available, low ‘embodied-energy’ building materials such as clay, stone, sand from dry washes, bamboo, straw and recycled concrete known as ‘urbanite’.
Kyle incorporates fast-growing renewable bamboo into his earthen buildings both structurally and artistically (see photo at left) and is our local expert with bamboo growing and fabrication methods.
Kyle’s emphasis is to teach others along the way and frequently has interns working on his projects.
