Ecological Building Workshop


Join Guenther Andraschko and Trish Allen for the one-day Ecological Building Workshop and get your hands in the clay! Participants will engage in two real life building projects using earth-building methods of adobe in-situ and light-earth. Through the practical application and instruction you will gain an understanding of the benefits and process of both.

Local Matakana owner-builder, James Andrews will join as a guest tutor to share his experience with light-earth (clay & straw in fill method) while Guenther imparts 30-years of earth building expertise as he guides you through an adobe insitu build.

This one-day Ecological Building Workshop is part of a series of practical sessions linked to the Matakana Modular PDC presented by Trish Allen and Guenther Andraschko. Anyone is welcome to attend the Practical Workshop days to gain hands-on skills related to permaculture practices.
