Come join Architecture for Humanity in the construction of a new earthbag storage shed to benefit New Farm Institute at Green Gate Farms.  The is an informative and educational project for all ages, teaching principles of sustainable design and construction.  The shed is a small scale version of three schools that will be built in the Everest region of Nepal over the next year using the same construction method. Bring your gloves and be ready to get a little dirty as we will be working dirt, lots of dirt.  Volunteers will be filling bags with soil, stacking bags, constructing windows on site, and plastering walls just as the Nepali villages will be doing in the coming months.

We will have two shifts each day for volunteers: 7:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Contact Ken Johnson.

Be sure to bring your own water bottle.  Water will be provided on site but we will only have a limited amount of cups.  Hope to see you all there!
