Natural Building workparties this summer!

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. The rest of the summer will be cob, finish plastering and carpentry.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Jenny:; 503-548-8459, or look at TLC Farm’s Facebook page for event info.
