Our classes are fully natural meaning that we do not use heavy machines.  Our holistic classes are designed to connect our participants to the earth and the primitive styles of natural building.  We are a gentle class that flows with the group and encourages a concensus among the particapants.  We like to start our days with a positive reflection and deep breathing exercises that encourage community and togetherness.

You will also get a workbook and guideline for the class and the option to be added to a virtual classroom in advance of the hands on workshop.

We look forward to having you join our class and space is limited to 9 students on a first come first serve basis.

Our students are people passionate about community and primitive building styles without the use of heavy equipment or machinery.
