Natural Building EARTH PLASTER workparties October 2017

Mini Moon

Background: the Mini Moon is a 200 sq. ft. light-straw clay and cob building. It was started May 2016 and at this point the straw-clay walls are done but the round “cozy cob corner” is not yet built. In May-June 2017 we put the first coat of earthen plaster on the inside and outside straw-clay walls, and we installed the first layer of the earthen floor. In August/September we buit the cob wall. Now we will be working on the earthen plaster inside and outside the house, and some carpentry.

More info coming soon!

We will also work some weekday evenings; get in touch with Jenny to find out which!

The earth plaster we use is made of fresh horse manure! It's a fascinating and fun process to work with this materail. We have gloves for you to use, and I promise it is not as gross as you think!! It's actually quite fun (says the people who have been doing this with me over the summer!).

I'll have some snacks; please bring your own lunch and/or snacks to share.

Feedback and participation welcome! Please send bug reports to
