We just recently completed the first 4 days of our joint earth-building and permaculture design certificate course in conjunction with, and hosted at, the California Institute of Earth Art and Architecture (Cal-Earth). There are about 30 students taking the combined training. Because it is November, we are having some pretty cold nights and days here on the desert.Cal-Earth is located just outside of Hesperia, CA. where the San Bernardino Mountains meet the Mojave Desert. They get 7 inches of rainfall per year, the majority of which falls during the winter months. The famed Joshua tree is the dominant over-story tree on the landscape. Some of these desert pioneers can be a thousand years old.
