Last Sunday a handful of hardworking volunteers came out to help build  
and learn how to build with earthbags. Our apprentice crew is  
appreciative for the help and enjoyed meeting Sean, Tali, Pete and  
Sebastian. Thanks to each for their contribution and good company.  
We'll do the same again this Sunday and anyone interested is welcome.  
Here are the details:

Join the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute crew this weekend as they  
build a root cellar to store food during the upcoming permaculture  
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
well (particularly Thursday and Saturday.)

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.
