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:
- Clay and Lime Plasters
- Natural Paints
- Natural Wood Stains

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.
