Due to our full-time jobs and other events taking place on the farm, we don't get to as many workshops as we used to. However, we are excited to be partnering with Disputanta Cob for a Building with Cob 101 workshop on Memorial Day weekend (May 24-26). Dirt Damsel Extraordinaire, Diane Jennings, will lead students through the basics of soil testing, making and testing bricks, mixing and building, and plastering with clay and lime. Registration includes 3 days of instruction, camping, and 3 meals per day. Early bird discounts are available if you pay your registration by April 24th.
