Natural Building Apprenticeship (6 Weeks)

$1500

July 22, 2016 - September 2, 2016 Contact

The amount that you will learn while at the Ecovillage Training Center is impossible

to describe. Like all of life, it will be what you make of it. However, we can promise

you that joining our program is an opportunity to fully immerse yourself into

ecovillage living. You will be surrounded by the innovation and dreams of those who

have passed through here before and those who live here now. You are invited to

join us and contribute your own energy into the mix.

 

The nature of the Natural Building Apprenticeship is very hands. There is a focus on

comprehending the function and behavior of natural ingredients, which allows for a

deeper understanding of how and why we employ particular materials. Techniques

for applying each material are thoroughly practiced.

Hands on Experience With:

  • Straw-Slip
  • Clay and Lime Plasters
  • Natural Paints
  • Natural Wood Stains
  • Green Roofs
  • Cob

This program will help you make your dreams of building your own home come

true. Through facilitated writing reflections, activities, and meditations, participants

will have the opportunity to work on personal designs.
