About the Event
The beginning of a building determines what its potential will be: in this demonstration + course, you can witness/assist with/contribute to laying and tying the rebar and pouring concrete that creates the initial boundary between a house and the ground.
We will come together during the day to work and learn techniques of natural building; at night we can enjoy team meals, bonding over a fire, sharing skills, stories and scents of the Northwest summer at a campground onsite at the Earth Homes headquarters.
Camping will be available and transportation to the Brier Homestead provided each day.
