Earth Oven and Floors525

Come learn how to build earthen floors that are durable, ecological and so comfortable on bare feet. We will begin installation of a big floor in a traditional Hawaiian Hale (gathering structure). We will also be constructing a traditional cob oven for baking. The skills covered in this class are an ideal introduction to working with Cob/Adobe/Sand-Clay mixtures. While on site at Mohala Farms, you will be introduced to all aspects of their small-scale (6-acre) organic farming operation and will have the opportunity to participate in a number of their organic and permaculture practices. Plus the entire workshop is only minutes away from Haleiwa town and the beautiful north shore coast line of O’ahu with it’s legendary surfing and ocean activities. We will take a field trip together to see nearby sites.
$525 before March 1, $600 after
The 5-day workshop Includes all meals (both from the farm and purchased), airport pick-up (at scheduled time), and on site camping (BYOT — bring your own tent).
