ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:|
This 2-day workshop will be focused on building a customized version of a traditional Navajo Hogan Roof for our "Shoe House" ~ a sculpted cob children's play area shaped like a shoe! Come play with us as we learn to reclaim materials from the waste stream and make cool stuff! Teachings include "Do-It-Yourself" know-how, such as hand-milling round wood, de-barking burnt trees and using logs and a variety of other used materials for roofing small sheds and/or play structures. We will also touch on use of natural products for preserving and protecting round wood rot and infestation.
ABOUT THE FARM:
Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm was founded in 2010 and specializes in teaching earthen building concepts, herbalism and medicine-making, and producing fresh herbs, herbal tea blends and seasonal organic produce using poly-cropping, companion planting and bio-intensive farming practices. We consider ourselves "Better than Organic" and ban GMOs, pesticides and other harmful inputs. Through the permaculture lens, concepts of Earth Care; People Care; and Fair Share are played out in the gardens and in the community that we serve.
Golden Rocks Permaculture offers community, scenic views, gardens, rural camping, outdoor community kitchen area and an outdoor shower for student visitors. We also have low-cost dorm style accommodations and a separate room available for rent if you prefer to sleep indoors. Workshops are inclusive of a loving mid-day meal from our organic gardens daily. Coffee, tea, spring water and healthy snacks are provided daily as well.
Cost for the full 2-day workshop is $150 and includes organic lunches daily from the gardens and onsite camping at beautiful Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm located in Middletown, Lake County, CA.
