Natural Building



Introduction to Natural Building and Sustainable Design Course

Barbara, founder of Mount of Oaks, will teach several courses at Keela Yoga Farm in the summer of 2019. Here at the Mount of Oaks, we will host an 8 day course for women only in June 2019 – more details to follow.

Here is a little about the 8 day courses…

Barbara says, ‘The main focus will be on  STRAWBALE WALLS, but you will learn the basics of COB, CORDWOOD, WATTLE & DAUB, ADOBE BRICKS, LIGHT EARTH SLABS, EARTHBAGS, EARTH AND LIME PLASTERS and other finishes. Yes, all these in 8 days.’
