Experience a passive solar mud house in this hands-on workshop and learn the basics to build your own structure. Herbie will show you clay bearing earthen building techniques with clay-rich soil in two fast hours of fun. Tour the home he and his wife have been working on for over 35 years. Come prepared to get down with earth and water...you will get dirty in this workshop! All materials provided.
