Hello,

We are two McGill students who are passionate about natural building and permaculture. Dillon is an engineering student designing a natural house composed of cob-straw bale hybrid walls, sod roof, compressed earth foundations, earthen floor and rocket mass stove heater system (and much more). Marina is a recent graduate of the environment and development program at McGill.

We have plans to start a permaculture farm once we both graduate (for now, only one of us has graduated). We would love to gain some hands-on (as opposed to theoretical) knowledge by lending a hand (or all four!) with any natural construction projects you may have this year. Feel free to email me at dillon.mark.stanger((AT))gmail((DOT))com.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Marina and Dillon

P.S.

Thank you everyone for your help, offers, and advice. We found people to host us.
We are still open for offers for planning next year's summer. By then, we will have practical hands on knowledge!
Thanks,
Dillon and Marina

Hi Dillon,

Would you guys want to come here to live/help out? Hillsborough NC. Just moved here, getting set up, and need another structure built. Setting up solar, water system to empty into what was used as a backyard pool, food systems.

Thanks,
