Cal-Earth Volunteer Day!

10177 Baldy Ln

Cal-Earth, the California Institute of Earth Art and Architecture, is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to providing solutions to the human need for shelter through research, development, and education in earth architecture. They envision a world in which every person is empowered to build a safe and sustainable home with their own hands, using the earth under their feet. This causes less harm to the habitat and far less depletion of natural resources. The global housing shortage currently includes some 20-40 million refugees and displaced persons, and hundreds of millions more who live in substandard or slum housing. With compounding environmental challenges and the acceleration of natural and man-made disasters, this shortage will only become more severe in the coming decades. Come help Cal-Earth with their noble cause with us. Cal-Earth is a non-profit. They count on the contributions of community to fulfill their mission. By volunteering your time you will be supporting Cal-Earth's ability to continue this work and helping people all around the world. The day starts at 9 am with a brief orientation followed by a site clean up and a few other volunteer opportunities. Around 1 pm we will break for a potluck lunch (optional) and then after lunch we will take you on a complimentary tour of the site. In general the potluck will not be vegan. Let's introduce this group to some of our vegan dishes. Mick and I will bring a vegan dish. Please post what items you will bring. As a reminder please wear comfortable work clothes and closed-toed shoes. If you have work gloves please bring those. Hats, water bottles, sunscreen and lip balm are also recommended. Please make sure you go here ( https://www.calearth.org/volunteer ) to sign up on the Cal-Earth site.
