Volunteers Needed for Cob Building Project in Greensboro, NC

Hey friends,

Volunteer In Your Community (VIYC) is calling for volunteers to help build a cob structure in Pleasant Garden near Greensboro, North Carolina on the weekends of August 3 – 4, 2013 and August 10 – 11, 2013 from 1 pm to 4 pm each day. Help this community get a new building and learn cob building techniques.

VIYC’s mission is to actively provide assistance to the impoverished, connect them to available resources that address the causes of their poverty, educate them and support them in reaching stable financial independence.

Cob is an ancient, inexpensive building method that VIYC is using to construct a meeting place for their volunteer group. The demonstration cob house will be on the community garden site and function as a community kitchen. It will also be an example of “a cost effective environmentally friendly house that can help combat homelessness.”

Wear comfortable clothing and shoes that can get muddy.

Please join us at 805 Stoney Hill Circle, Pleasant Garden, NC 27406.

For details, directions, and to sign up contact Tinece Holman-Boykin at (336) three,three, four -2984 or email viyc.volunteers(at)
