Solar Energy Workshop
Are you thinking about making the switch to solar but don't know where to start? Are you overwhelmed by the choices available for solar panels, batteries, or inverters? We offer a three day introductory course outlining the basic components that make up a home system. You will learn about the current products available and trends in the solar industry. At the end of the three days you will have all the information you need to design your own system based on your personal energy consumption and budget so you can make an informed buying decision.
Natural Building Workshop
We offer workshops covering a variety of natural building techniques with a focus on building out of earth. We provide an introduction to multiple approaches to natural building. In the hands on portion of this workshop we working with cob, wattle and daub, adobe brick, finishing plasters and paints, and adobe floors.
We host workshops on and off site.
Community Development Projects
We believe in giving back to our community. During these workshops we focus our energy on small projects that can provide big improvements in the lives of our neighbors. Examples of what this may involve are building a clean burning stove from cob for a local family or improving sanitation by constructing better bathroom facilities for a home. By keeping the scope of theses projects small, it provides an opportunity for you to make a real impact in a short amount of time.
