Spend a week building an outdoor pizza kitchen at the Vague Estates in Troy, NY with Michael McDonough of Rising Earth Natural Building.
Participants will learn how to:
- build a stone and rubble foundation,
- mix and build with cob,
- design and build a cob oven,
- learn round wood carpentry,
- become familiar with earth and lime plaster basics.
The Vague Estates is a beautiful 50 acre property located two miles from downtown Troy. The site features acres of woods overlooking the Hudson Valley, and is adjacent to a natural area with swimming holes and waterfalls.
Three healthy and delicious meals will be served daily, prepared on site from farm fresh ingredients. On site camping is available and encouraged. Our days will be spent primarily engaged in hands-on building, with opportunity for related activities including design exercises, and touring a local natural building. Evenings are unscheduled, providing time to explore Troy’s nightlife or sit around the campfire.
Group rates and work-trade may be available upon early inquiry.
