Join the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute crew this weekend as they build a
root cellar to store food during the upcoming permaculture design
certifications course.

A small cold cellar is being built into the side of a berm with earthbags.
Earthbag construction is a low-tech, accessible method for everyday people to
build simple and grand structures out of just the earth, sandbags and a
variety of common materials.

Come to Cayuta Sun this Sunday to help build this structure. Our first work &
learn session is from 10 am until noon. We take a two-hour siesta and then
work from 2 to 5 pm. No special skills are needed. You are welcome to come for
just one work & learn session. Please RSVP. Extra help is needed other days as

Cayuta Sun is located between Watkins Glen and Ithaca. Visit
for directions.

The Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute
offers workshops, apprenticeships, and
permaculture design certificate classes.
