Spring Session: April 8th – June 15th, 2013
Fall Session: October 6th – December 14th, 2013
The Natural Building Practicum (NBP) is a 10 week work-study designed for natural builders of all backgrounds and levels of experience. Each week is split between in-class instruction, hands-on application and independent study. Classes follow the curriculum outlined in the Sustainable Shelter Series.
For the Spring 2013 session we will be focused on the construction of Aprovecho’s new outdoor kitchen and the completion of the Bamboo Yurt started during the Shelter Series 2012. This session will involve hands-on experience in stone foundations, timber and round-pole framing, waddle and daub wall systems, rocket stoves, cob, earthen and lime plasters, living roofs and more. Sign up below!
The Fall Practicum project is yet to be determined.
Depending on availability and the order in which you sign-up, either a room in the strawbale dormitory or camping facilities will be provided. Meals are communal and participants are asked to share in the responsibilities of cooking and cleaning. There is access to showers, a kitchen, hiking trails, and relaxation space. If you have any questions please email Chris Foraker.
Cost: $2150 ($500 deposit)
