Hi all,


We are very excited about this work shop and thought those of you in the US
may want to know about it. The intention is for people who are planning
events, activist action camps or other large gatherings of people on land.
It is also for people who plan to help people in disaster areas of
earthquake, war, floods etc to build temporary settlements that are
ecologically sound and maintain appropriate hygene.  We will be exploring
and building many different types of cooking, water filtration,  solar
showers, sewage systems and will have a discussion about solar hydrogen.  If
you know anyone who might be interested please let them know. We have space
for a few more people.

Warm regards,

Penny & James
