We want to provide a safe and rewarding experience. With the Covid 19 recommendations, this workshop has very limited spots or camping available. If you are requesting camping we will contact you using the information from your registration to confirm availability.

Our goal will be to social distance as much as possible by limiting the number of enrollees and preparing separate workstations, as well thorough handwashing. Masks will be voluntary while outside, which should be most of the time. 

We are really looking forward to the much welcome reprieve from the heat and strange chaos and stagnation of quarantine and get dirty doing something invigorating, empowering and intriguing. 
​We are all rediscovering a different sense of community and we hope this series reinvigorates our minds and spirits even as we social distance  responsibly. 

If you are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to someone with Covid please let us know and contact us to cancel. Thanks! Please reserve early to secure your spot..
Join us next Saturday and learn about harvesting, making and applying local earthen clay plaster and building with light-clay-straw (leicht lehmbau). Come prepared with questions about Natural Building and Design and continue learning how to build your own Natural Cottage.
