A few moments captured by one of our volunteers. Thank you Linda Liem. We are hand rendering the inside of our strawbale teaching building with a cob mix of clay, straw and sand. This is a truly tactile experience that creates an unforgettable connection to this beautiful organic building along with creating time to connect with friends old and new. We are looking for helping hands on week days, message us if you are interested. We will teach you all if you haven’t done it before. ... See MoreSee Less
