We will cover a lot of material in 3 days! Our focus will be on continuing work on the garden wall that surrounds our dining/gathering space. This includes completing the top of an existing wall with cob, building a completely new portion of wall with cob, strawbale, and slip-straw wall systems, and applying earthen and lime plasters. If time allows, we will include hands-on work installing the living green roof atop the wall.

Expect to learn:

–        mixing cob by machine and by foot

–        building and sculpting with cob

–        mixing and installing slip-straw

–        installing straw bales, and preparing them for plaster

–        mixing and applying earthen and lime plasters

–        installing a window

–        lunch discussions: “foundation/siting”, “roof options”

–        touring our campus demonstration buildings, as well as 2 permitted natural homes

Seven wholesome meals will be provided (Friday’s lunch through Sunday’s lunch). For one lunch or dinner, we will enjoy a pizza party with our cob oven! Consider joining our 2-day foundation workshop that precedes this course, for a full 5-day experience!
