Hello, everybody! I'm brand-spankin' new to the site. I live in NW Louisiana and would like to build a cob oven, preferably fed by a rocket stove underneath. While there is a wealth of articles and videos out there, nothing beats hands-on training, but most of it seems to be up North. Does anyone know of anyone in my region (within a couple hours radius of the Shreveport/Bossier City area) that offers workshops on this, perhaps even to trade instruction for labor?

In all this time, no one's posted a reply? Kind of looks like you're running into the same difficulty I am. Workshops seem to be everywhere but the south.

I am getting ready to move back home to Alabama. I want to build using natural materials. All the info says this stuff should work in any climate, but most of those doing the talking are in desert climates or in climates cooler than the south and since the earth can vary depending on your location, it's hard to put stock in those promises.

My funds for workshop tuition, let alone, travel to and from workshop is limited so if I go the worksop route I need to know the experience would port well to my home climate and land.

Once I'm settled back in Bama, I was thinking about investigating the feasibility of hosting a workshop. Ua know, get one of those seasoned covers to come south and make cob of what's underfoot there.

Maybe we can somehow work together. A workshop where you are or where I am? Maybe get some other southerners involved and have a series of workshops across the southeast. That way we could share the expense and make this valuable knowledge available to the wider permaculture community ( I believe we're out there, just isolated from one another )at home.

If we can't host workshops, maybe we can collect a group of the interested and fumble through together?
