Gearin' up for Autumn!: Are you interested in construction using natural and sustainable building practices? If you're familiar with Earthships, consider learning about cob cottages as well! We will be assisting Kim Evans and friends construct a 200²ft. miniature cob cottage garden shed on her property in Golden, CO. We will help her complete the cob portion of her build.
Donations / Attendance: If you feel you cannot accommodate a full fee, please contact Kim and speak with her directly. We will not be turning down anyone that is interested to provide their time and muscle for construction. Donations will help pay for food, water use and somewhat cover the costs to hire the seasoned builders who will be educating all of us. Donations will go directly to the host, Kim Evans after settling on her property.
$100 requested donation.
