Event description

This one-day practical workshop is part of a series of sessions linked to the Matakana Modular Permaculture Design Certificate Course presented by experienced permaculture teachers, Trish Allen and Guenther Andraschko. Anyone is welcome to attend the Practical Workshops to gain hands-on skills related to permaculture practices.

Guenther imparts 30-years of earth building experience as he guides you through an adobe in-situ build which is a cement stabilised mudbrick, a great malleable material, ideally used for garden walls or where walls are exposed to the elements. Local owner-builder, James Andrews will join as a guest tutor to share his experience with light-earth, a method which uses clay & straw as insulation to infill a timber frame.
