Bicycle Mill

This is a human powered bicycle mill that Max and Simón made.
Very appropriate, sustainable, and fun. I have also had delicious smoothies made by a pedal powered blender, seen clothes washed this way and movies and laptops powered.

And YES! The bread & cookies made from this mill taste better!

Above is a little video of me taking a 1st test run.
Ahhhhh...the independence!

my dear friends Abby and Kya
and the bed and breakfast we designed and built using ecological materials. Here you can see some earthen plasters, healthy paints, sustainably harvested and recycled wood, organic cotton, etc.
