Weeklong Cob and Natural Building Intensive
September 20-24, Binghamton, NY

Construct a passive solar greenhouse and tool shed using locally- 
sourced, natural materials. Through hands-on learning and daily  
lecture sessions, we will cover cob and straw bale building  
techniques, stone and earthbag foundation construction, wood framing,  
home and greenhouse design, greenhouse glazing options, natural  
plasters as well as roofing options for natural structures. Students  
will leave with a thorough knowledge and experience base with which to  
begin construction of their own natural building projects.

Workshop tuition is $450 and includes meals and on-site camping  
accommodations. We offer a sliding scale for our course tuition - No  
interested participant will be turned away for lack of funds. We also  
offer early registration discounts as well as discounts for students  
traveling together. To register or find out more, contact Mark  
Krawczyk at mark at sgnb.com, 802.999.2768 or visit
