Brick Stemwall for Cob Garden Wall in Humboldt Park

We are laying a brick stem wall this month with salvaged brick from a demolition site. We will be knocking off old mortar, and laying/mortaring the brick to form the stemwall foundation for a cob wall to be completed later this season.

Pizza will be served - please inform if you are vegan, so we can (easily) accommodate you.

No experience necessary, no knowledge necessary :)

    I'm interested in meeting people interested in permaculture in Chicago. Looks like a nice day for an outdoor project!

    Oh and bring work gloves if you have them!!! If you have a favorite bricklaying trowel, you could bring that too - but I have trowels. I think I got the right ones ;)

    For anyone who is interested, Humboldt Park has a Food Not Bombs chapter and the distribution is at 3:00 pm. Anyone who wants free groceries (and something hot to eat besides pizza) is welcome to break at 3:00pm to go to the park. This is optional of course. We are part of the volunteer team, so my husband will be heading over to the park at 3:00. Bring a grocery bag if you are interested in this-
