Hi Friends,

There are still some spots left in our upcoming  workshops!

Our goal is to support the building of a self-reliant, thriving Ojai 
Valley and beyond.
Carolyn and I are at it again with Cob Workshops in April & June.  
Please spread the word to your circles and come if you can. Discounts 
for groups and previous workshop participants, especially if you bring 
friends (email us for details). The time is now to create community 
based self-reliance and reclaim our ability to craft /Home/. Hope to see 
you there! Flyer is attached.

/Happy Building,/

    /*Building with Earth - Cob Workshop
    */ /April 12th-15th 10-4pm/

/ /

    This workshop will focus on sculpting walls for a small earthen
    structure. We'll cover the basics of cob building including foot and
    tractor mixing, trimming, window and door installation, sculpting
    niches and shelves, and talk about how to incorporate different
    design features depending on your needs. The cob method is deeply
    green. It utilizes non-toxic, inexpensive, extremely local
    materials  and low-tech, low carbon footprint (/not to mention
    awesome fun/) building processes. Come learn to build with the earth
    beneath your feet. Our workshop is designed to wake up and empower
    the natural builder in you! Tuition: $177
    /*Introduction to Natural Building: Play in the Mud
    April 14th 10-4pm
    Play in the Mud is a fun, hands-on cob building experience. Come and
    playfully join us in an introduction to natural building materials
    and methods. We'll learn about clay soils, how to create your unique
    cob recipe and mixing and application techniques. Building
    Experience is NOT a Prerequisite. Come see what is possible!
    tuition: $50

Plant so that your own heart will grow.
Love so God will think, "Ahhhhhh, I got kin in that body! I should start 
inviting that soul over for coffee and rolls."
Sing because this is a food our starving world needs.
Laugh because that is the purest sound. ~Hafiz
