We are excited about the Natural Building
workshop we are offering this summer at
Commonweal Garden. It is turning into a
spectacular event. In addition to the incredible
professional natural builders and instructors
Michael Smith and Janine Bjornsen, we will also
have presentations from Darrel DeBoer, bamboo
architect extraordinaire, and the Kleiwerks West
Team of Marisha Farnsworth and Kevin Rowell.
Marisha and Kevin are professional natural
builders who have been working all over the
world. They will be bringing amazing bamboo
builder friends from Costa Rica, Martin and Grace
Coto, who will be teaching bamboo construction during the workshop.
This workshop is going to be a once in a lifetime
event, so we hope you can join us! If you are
interested, we encourage you to sign up soon
our last 2 workshops have sold out. We will also
have delicious organic food from Carin McKay and
lots of music around the campfire.
Hope to see you in July!!
