Earth Floor and Plaster Workshops – A Success!

Chris Koehn

A great group of future builders joined us for our Earth Floor and Plaster Workshops this year.

We were honored to get to know them, share our skills, and see them absorbing and applying new knowledge. Together we put our talents to work on the floors and walls of the new EcoNest Center in Ashland which is nearly complete!

Our move in ceremony will be April 22. If you wish to participate please get in touch!

We hope you’ll stay in touch!
