Hello again folks! I am getting ready to return to the Ant Village for a couple weeks to do some more work on my Earth integrated house, and I'd like to invite you to come be a part of the project. I am going to be closing in the walls of my house with a pallets, straw, and cob wall system I learned about from my friend and cob expert Miguel Elliot, aka "Sir Cobalot."  Miguel has been using this system to create quick and affordable shelters which he has dubbed "Palletable Cobins." I be using a modified version of his freestanding wall system to fill in and over the timber frame structure of my house. I am happy to share what I have learned in exchange for some help with the project, and host you on my plot. Attendees of the other workshops taking place at Wheaton Labs are welcome to join us in their free time as well, if they want all the hands on permaculture and natural building experience they can handle!

I will be working on the project from approximately May 18th to the 30th. Message me if you would like to join.

Below are some pictures of Miguel's "Palletable Cobins."

Hello again permies.  I've been back at the Ant Village for a few days, and work is moving forward on my house wall project.  There will be more videos to follow on that, but for now I'd like to give you a look into what I was doing for part of last winter, a permaculture design and installation in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona.  It was a great experience and turned out well, but was also a major motivation for me to pursue more education and skill building in permaculture landscaping, so I can do this sort of thing better and quicker.  So starting June 12th, I will be attending the ecological landscaper immersion at the Permaculture Skills Center in California.  I am very excited about this very in depth training, and the opportunities that will arise from it.  If you would like to support me in this journey, I have a GoFundMe campaign going right now to help pay for tuition and expenses: https://www.gofundme.com/sendjessetotheeli
