Help needed and also information building earthbag homes in Adrian GA it's my first time. I'm seeking individuals with or without experience to help build earthbag homes on my property. Also seeking experienced or knowledgeable individuals that could guide me in the process.

Paid or volunteer is welcomed.
I have tents, portable toilets, portable showers, and portable stoves. I can provide food and drinks.
I just purchased the land.

Ok, good start.
I suggest the following maybe in order;
- buying a book on the subject
- purchasing the earth bags
- plan something small but eventually useful
- maybe get the foundations in first and then seek assistance.

I've been exploring, researching, and watching builds about earthbag houses for 6 years now. I'm also reading a book. I finally have the land to build it. I just want to make sure it's being done correctly.

I'm sorry, I was going to have all of the supplies and foundations before I required help, I should have said that and worded it differently. Was seeing if there were anyone interested.

Thank you for your suggestions.
So should I delete this post then add a new one when I'm ready

Sometimes is good to leave things up so others can see the mistake of clarity in your wording.
Its only when the conversation between is read by others that people will realise how it can be done differently.

I would continue here until you do create another page and then link them to enable a transfer of those still interested.
I would encourge having faith in your own research, otherwise you may never start!
