Weeklong Cob and Natural Building Intensive

Construct a passive solar greenhouse and tool shed using locally-sourced, natural materials. Through hands-on learning and daily lecture sessions, we will cover cob and straw bale building techniques, stone and earthbag foundation construction, wood framing, home and greenhouse design, greenhouse glazing options, natural plasters as well as roofing options for natural structures.

Workshop tuition is $450 and includes meals and on-site camping accommodations. We offer a sliding scale for our course tuition - No interested participant will be turned away for lack of funds. We also offer early registration discounts as well as discounts for students traveling together. To register or find out more, contact Mark Krawczyk at?[address removed],[masked] or visit?
