You'll have to import something. For small projects I got clay powder from a claymaking studio. There might be a larger scale option like that. Cheap kitty litter is basically clay. Road base from a rock supply shop might be an option. I am sorry, that's a terrible feeling to want to do something like an earthbag home and not have clay available. Perhaps there's an alternate building method that fits your resources better? Hope it works out for you.
