This action-packed, hands-on/feet-on workshop is for adults. We will be building a livable structure from the ground up. Course will include every step of the process, from the foundation, framing, cobbing and finish plastering. The structure will be framed with pallets, insulated with straw and covered in an earthen cob plaster. These structures are quick, easy and cheap to build while the finished product is beautiful and functional. Miguel Elliott, aka Sir Cobalot, has been a leader in the natural building movement for the past 25 years. He had been operating his business/service Living Earth Structures out of Northern California, leading workshops, teaching at schools, and building backyard earthen structures. His website is www. LivingEarthStructures. com. Primitive tent camping sites are available including access to hot showers, plus 3 plant-based meals a day are included in your tuition! You will need to bring your own camping gear.
