We just started our earthbag root cellar addition to our earthbag earthship. The workshop went really well and progress continues. Our next workshop will be building an earthbag chicken coup in Leicester, NC on May 26th and 27th. More info at http://sustainablelifeschool.com

Any more progress on this project? I want to include a root cellar in my future place, and was thinking earth bags would be a good choice to limit wear and tear from the elements, without using concrete.
I'm not quite a lumberjack, but that's OK, I sleep all night and I dream all day; I'll coppice trees, I'll grow my food, and compost poo and pee! With a well and off-grid solar, it's a permies life for me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FshU58nI0Ts
