Hands On Earth Building Workshop

with Brian Baker
10–4pm. Join master earth builder Brian Baker as we break ground and start by creating a wood-fired adobe oven in our new outdoor kitchen classroom area at the American River Ranch.

Earth building is one of the oldest construction methods around and is still widely used today. The attraction to an earthen environment is undeniable. There is just something about the look and feel of the material that resonates deep with in our core. Maybe it is the timeless aesthetic or could earth building be a way of connecting to our past and the world around us. Fun for all ages, earth building is guaranteed to bring new vitality into your home and life.
