Hi Everyone,

"Vibez International is hosting a marvelous 7 day earth bag building workshop in Jamaica West Indies (July 14th-21st). The location for this project is in sheffield,Westmoreland, 7 minutes inland of Jamaica’s West coast . We will build a monumental 16-foot dome using human hands and age-old technologies.

Learn the Earth bag building technique; one of the most durable long lasting housing options available. Easy to learn and easy to acquire the few needed supplies. This green technique will empower ones with the ability to build anywhere in the world as long as there is dirt!

In this course you will learn everything you need to know on how to build a complete dome house capable of connecting to other domes via doorways. Coarse covers; [the foundation, soil testing, pole compass, bag filling, bag laying, tamping, barbed wire technique, electric installation, doors,windows and plaster]. Now is the time for you to expand the possibilities for your future home project, hone your holistic architectural and engineering ideas, learn new craftsman skills, change the current climate of your earth, body, soul, and mind, and redefine your life through this epic Earth Bag Building Workshop.

Join us in bringing this sustainable building technique to Jamaica with plenty time to explore and experience Jamaica's heritage and natural wonders. Enjoy being energized by the island while giving and gaining knowledge. We will have free time every afternoon during the workshop week for excursions or beach time. Vibez will remain in Jamaica for the rest of July for those looking for a deeper Jamaican experience. If you are interested in attending Reggae Sumfest, the worlds largest reggae show, July (22,23,24) and or Nyahbingi Rastafari ceremony and would like time to soak up the good Vibez!
