Workshop on Sustainable Building Practices - Taos, New Mexico

Earth and Sun Sustainable Builders will be hosting a workshop on sustainable building practices May 30 through September 29, near Taos, New Mexico. We would welcome your students or employees to participate in a hands-on earth bag building project, for 2-weeks to four months. They will be guided from thought form through finished building — literally from the ground up with earth bag walls, conventional metal roof, photovoltaics, and passive solar design. Women and men with varied skills are welcome. Previous building skills are not required, being good natured is. The 5-day work week leaves Saturday and Sunday free to explore northern New Mexico, which is so beautiful. On-site camping available.
