Cob Building Workshop

  • Oct 18, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Cob is an amazing, easy-to-learn natural building technique, using the gifts of our great mother Earth to create an environment which is sound, eco-friendly, and very low-impact.  It does not involve corn, by the way--no cobs, just clay!

The Tampa Bay Permaculture Guild is eligible for 10% off!  Ask for the coupon code by contacting loretta (at) wegrowfromhere.com or Justin Marlin treeslothboy (at) yahoo.com BEFORE registering on Eventbrite:  Permaculture Guild Tickets

    we do have a day rate as well--consider coming up for the day--you'd be amazed what you can pick up. Do arrange in advance for which specific day--we are planning a field trip or two mid-week.

    woohoo! Justin has found us a place! Stay tuned--we'll be posting the particulars as soon as we nail down a specific time frame!
    Please comment (if you are interested in this workshop) if you would prefer:
    Mid October or Thanksgiving holiday week

    This will be a two-week workshop, in Florida, but likely not a day-trip.
