Cob Workshop this Saturday/Greywater Workshops in May and June

Candace V.
San Diego, CA
Post #: 5

April 10th
6th and Quince in
Balboa Park

Join us in repairing the Poetry Bench, a 20 foot long natural building
project made of strawbale, cob and superadobe.
We will be repairing the clay plaster so park visitors can continue to
enjoy this beautiful earthen bench under a stunning grove of magnolia
trees. Bring a poem to drop in the poem drop box.

Our work day will consist of mixing clay/sand with your feet and
sculpting cob with your hands. Its easy, fun and a brilliant way to
build sustainable benches, ovens, homes.

Please bring a sack lunch, gloves, hat and water.
Donation - $5-10 is appreciated for materials.

For a slide show of how the bench was built visit
