> *Fire Powered Hot Tub - January 25-26 - Big Island, Hawaii. *Learn how to
> heat water with solar and fire in this two day demonstration course.
> Discuss various approaches and options to home water heating without
> electricity. Then assemble a simple hot tub unit and get in a soak.
> *Earth Oven and Floor - April 5-9 - Haleiwa, Oahu.* Come learn how to
> build earthen floors that are durable, ecological and so comfortable on
> bare feet. We will begin installation of a big floor in a traditional
> Hawaiian Hale (gathering structure). We will also be constructing a
> traditional cob oven for baking. The skills covered in this class are an
> ideal introduction to working with Cob/Adobe/Sand-Clay mixtures. While on
> site at Mohala Farms, you will be introduced to all aspects of their
> small-scale (6-acre) organic farming operation and will have the
> opportunity to participate in a number of their organic and permaculture
> practices. Plus the entire workshop is only minutes away from Haleiwa town

> partially completed Earthbag buildings. You will learn skills needed to
> plan and finish your own buildings out of earth, rocks, and wood. Learn the
> art of masonry dome building with Earthbags. We will construct an 8 ft
> earthbag dome in this course. Study concepts of bio-architecture like
> whole-systems design, water, power, thermal mass climate control, and
> passive solar heat collection. Practice drawing methods to help you design
> structures with these features. Experience finishing techniques like
> earthen plasters, cement, and lime. Your tuition gets you: Lectures,
> hands-on instruction, tour of the area, ground transport, meals, and
> camping. Enjoy seeing a slice of Jamaica on a couple incredible field

> days of intensive learning at a remote site in Southern Colorado. We will
> put the final touches on the Regenerative Home. The home is
> self-sufficient, low-cost, using appropriate technology for these times. We
> will touch on passive and active solar arrays, passive solar design, rocket
> stoves, rammed earth building, adobe brick vault building, grey and black
> water use, berming, plasters and paints, permaculture site design, building
> codes, plumbing, electrical, passive refrigeration, solar water
> distillation, and solar hot water heating. Experience an amazing natural
