If you want a little encouragement and guidance as you start exploring earthen building join Uncle Mud for this 90 minute webinar brought to you by the fine folks at The Mother earth News. We will be digging up some cob soil in the yard, testing it, mixing it and building something cool, all the while taking your questions.

I broke it? You need to know that I just attempted to purchase your offer with PayPal and the website refused my payment? Said I had to do this and such and so?  Thanks anyway and if you get it fixed, let me know I would like to attend. . .

Something is very wrong with the Mother Earth Workshop web site: it lets you add the course to your cart  from the link above, and then on the next page it tells you the ticket is not valid. If you try to go ahead with the purchase it will block the transaction.

If I browse to Uncle Mud's profile page there, no workshops are available.

And on the workshop list page, you can view courses but you can't choose them. I just tried to do so with two different browsers.

I suspect you can view the workshop only if you subscribe to their all-access summer event.

Giving up, too much effort.

I see nothing about this on their website:   https://www.motherearthnews.com/

They list an phone number for customer service.

When I search for Uncle Mud, I didn't find anything about this.

Since Chris McClellan is Uncle Mud, I would expect that he knows so maybe can explain.

Nothing on facebook either: https://www.facebook.com/motherearthnewsmag/

UPDATE ON WEBINAR
Thank you all for your interest in the Uncle Mud Cob webinar at Mother Earth News and your tenacity and helpfulness to each other in trying to hunt down the problem. You people are awesome. Due to technical difficulties and the Mother Earth News team going all out on their Summer Program (a different thing) the webinar is being rescheduled for Wednesday, July 2020 at 3pm Central. Meanwhile there are now two ways to participate in the webinar:

1. Register for the event at this new link https://www.motherearthnewsfair.com/product/intro-to-cob-webinar-with-uncle-mud-and-family/

or

2. Get the webinar for free when you buy Becky Bee's Cob Builder's Handbook from Mother's Bookstore (it shows on backorder because we are in process of shipping the book to them right now, but you should be able to order anyway.
https://www.motherearthnews.com/store/product/the-cob-builders-handbook)

Thank you for your patience. Please let me know if you have any trouble, and watch this space for a sneak preview here in the next week or two.
--Uncle Mud and Family

What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
