Ferncliff (home of podcast co-host, David Gill) is hosting a 7-day Straw Bale Building Workshop the week of April 8-14, 2013. The workshop will be taught by Andrew Morrison of Strawbale.com – a leading expert in the field – as one of the eight national workshops scheduled for 2013. It is a very ‘hands-on’ workshop is designed to teach participants everything they need to know to build their own straw bale structure.

Ferncliff is building a 5300 sq ft Eco Center and participants will get their practice on it. Meals are provided. It is BYOT (as in Bring Your Own Tent), or bring your bedding and stay in Ferncliff’s log cabins or tree houses. Participants have the option of paying a bit more for retreat style or hotel room lodging.
