    I know zero about this and would love to learn so that eventually I can build my own cob house. I will be glad to put in the work in order to learn the technique.

    Hello! I’m looking to start my education on earth homes and building, and would love to be a part of what you guys do. I’m interested in the work exchange program but also would love to know more about your/any short term workshops that would be fit for a beginner.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi there!

    I am interested in learning about Cobb and natural building. I am based out of Northern California and am currently working at the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, where we host retreats including permaculture design courses. A few of us are looking to buy property and in this endeavor, I am interested in building Cobb and natural structures. I am researching where I can begin to learn more about how to build in this sustainable and natural way. As a hands-on learner, I’d love to find folks who I can learn from and trade my labor in exchange for education and experience in these building techniques.

    Thanks for your time and hope to hear back about possible opportunities to help out!
