Natural Building Workshop: September 15th-21st 2017
Join Michael McDonough and a group of natural building enthusiasts in the completion of a straw bale and earth cottage built with materials from the land. We'll finish cob walls with earth and lime plasters, work with round-wood carpentry and earth floors.
Expect a rich week of natural building as part of a tight-knit group. We'll work, learn, eat, and relax with one another in a productive and fun environment. We'll work on-site daily with a scheduled mid-week rest. Evenings are unscheduled so folks have time to enjoy the site, explore nearby towns, and relax around the fire.
