Eco Building and Hands-on Natural Plaster Experience
July 10 Gather at the whimsical Jamestown Town Hall to learn about
including Passive Solar Design
Building with Natural Materials (including adobe, cob, natural plaster)
Cordwood Construction and appropriate technology and energy conservation related to
shelters, and apply that knowledge in a village design exercise.
Then, go to a wild and funky strawbale home, where we’ll team up for two projects:
mixing and applying earthen plaster to create a natural plaster wall and
upgrade the home’s rainwwater harvesting system.
LEARN WITH YOUR HANDS, LEARN WITH YOUR HEART IN IT!
Be prepared to get muddy. Bring work gloves and a trowel if you have
one, as well a cup, layered clothing and rain gear. Bring a gallon or two of water, for drinking and clean up.
This site doesn’t have running water. Bring a sac lunch or eat lunch at the Jamestown Mercantile Cafe.
