Hello Everyone,
there are a few spots left for our 4 day workshop in July for those interested. Feel free to share with friends or register yourself at our website spiritwood workshops

During this four day immersion workshop you will learn the ins and outs of building a structure with natural materials.

Participants will get hands on experience with rubble trench and urbanite foundations, bale and cob walls, roof structures, and natural plasters. During this class we will be constructing a small (8'x8') chicken coop that demonstrates all of the same building concepts needed to build a cottage or full sized house.

Participants will also receive a tour of three complete structures; a balecob home and a strawbale workshop. These structure use Rocket Mass Heaters (batch and J-style) for winter heat, have finished earthen floors, and many other natural elements for discussion. Learn how you can build a home for less than a year of rent and still be comfortable and warm.

Camp sites are available at no cost. Please inquire ahead about availability for parking live in vehicles. Composting toilet and an outdoor shower are available for use.

An outdoor kitchen is available for community use with meals and staples provided (rice, bread, sugar, tea, coffee, etc.) as well as many greens from the garden. Join us as we have community around our wood fired pizza oven!

Those joining us are welcome to explore the 5 acre property, forage (many berries), swim in the ponds, and walk to the frisbee golf course just down the road.

We love animals, but unfortunately no pets are allowed.

Space is limited to 10 participants. Currently only 4 spots left.

Date: Saturday July 6 - Tuesday July 9

Start Time: 11am July 6

Cost: $650

5% discount for family + friends participating together
