WOW! Boy, are my husband and I glad to find you! We currently live in Sioux Lookout, ON and are currently building our own cob studio on my sisters property. It's 75 sq ft. It is more of a demo of cob, because we are not sure anyone has built cob this far north before and have it hold up to the elements of a Northern Canadian winter.
There is a Permaculture course offered by the University of Guelph at Ridgetown campus.
