Week 1 – The Super-Adobe Building Training
|Greetings Everyone… |
Milton Dixon, Bryce Ruddock and myself are up in Door County, WI, hosting a permaculture design charrette for a 40-acre farm owned by Jon and Ann Hippensteel of Lake Michigan Wind and Sun. We are in the early stages of exploring this beautiful farm and beginning to see some of the great possibilities for it. We’ll post again at the end of the event (5 days) and post something on the results we obtained. Wish you all were here…!!!
