New Workshop Dates Posted

While 2011 will be a time of re-settling for us, we are happy to be offering several trainings this year based on the construction of our own new home in Ashland, Oregon and on a small cottage in Salt Spring Island, BC.

Our new schedule of workshops and seminars for 2011 has been posted on the EcoNest Website. Workshop enrollment is limited and workshops fill quickly so sign up early! New trainings may be posted as the season progresses.

EcoNest Co. Updates

In 2010 we moved our Headquarters to Ashland, Oregon and Salt Spring Island, BC, realizing a long standing dream of bringing our vision of the living sanctuary to the fertile territories of the Pacific Northwest.

We left deep EcoNest roots in Santa Fe, New Mexico and hope to return to the Santa Fe area often to collaborate on new projects with our colleagues there; including Dave Madden AIA of EcoNest Design Santa Fe, Will Prull of Prull and Associates, and Steve Lawrence of Tall Pine Construction. All are talented and experienced associates.

We are just beginning to take root in Oregon and are looking forward to building our new Nestquarters on our beautiful property in Ashland this season. We hope you will be part of that process!

We wish you health, happiness and prosperity for 2011!
