We will use cob and straw bale wall systems to build parts of a lean-to and garden wall near our community space. Clay from the ground beneath us, and straw from a local farmer will provide most of what we need. These same systems can be used to build a house! We will also plaster one of our unfinished cottages together, with natural plasters that we mix ourselves.

–        mixing cob by machine and by foot

–        building and sculpting with cob

–        installing straw bales, and preparing them for plaster

–        mixing and applying earthen plasters and natural paints

–        lunch discussion: “pros and cons of different natural wall systems”

–        touring two natural, permitted homes, plus our campus

Four wholesome meals will be provided (Saturday’s lunch through Sunday’s lunch). On Saturday evening we will share a pizza dinner from our cob oven!
