What organizations or people inspire you, and why?

Love the Cob Cottage Co., the Natural Building Colloquium, and the many fine folks who are in the natural building movement. Catherine Wanek & so many others have passionately promoted & experimented with reconnecting to nature through building.

Would you like to share something with us?

I enjoy giving workshops on strawbale construction, earth ovens, earthen sculpting, rocket stoves, natural plasters, wattle & daub, and thatching.

What do you want to try?

Sustainable living skills, more rocket stove heated benches and very small buildings. I want to teach a workshop to create a very small start-to-finish building.

What about Natural Building interests you?

Using local natural building materials found in nature, solar design, ancient skills, strawbale construction, earth plasters and sculpting. I am interested in teaching, building small structures, refuge and emergency buildings. learning process.

What do you want to learn?

Sustainable living skills, foraging, primitive skills, permaculture.


I want to learn about natural building in chicago and share the workshops I am offering in natural building.
