Cob Oven and Cordwood Greenhouse Build Workshop


Jun 27, 2020 - Jul 3, 2020


Jewel Creek Organic Farm and Eco-Village

Have you ever wanted to build a Pizza oven in your backyard? Have you been interested in how to build natural buildings and homes? Have you wanted to learn different building methods for your own projects? Come join us and learn the theory and put it into practice and help us build to our ever growing Permaculture farm and Eco community.
You would arrive on the afternoon/evening of the 26th of June, ready to start after breakfast on Saturday the 27th. We will start the day with Breakfast and discussions about the schedule for the day. After breakfast we learn and work for 3 hours until Lunch and then after lunch come back to it for another hour or two and cleanup. The afternoons (afterwork) are yours to do with as you’d like. You can go hiking, foraging, swimming, paddling, sailing, chill and read, help in our gardens… or whatever. and then we meet up for dinner and a campfire for those that want to socialize around the fire.
Every participant is responsible for their own camping arrangements but there is lots of room to camps around the farm.
There are “Glamping” options in the form of Barrel Cabins located a couple hundred meters from the main house and gardens. These are ideal for couples and are each setup with a Queen-sized bed and shelves. They are super comfortable and very unique. If you would like to book a cabin act fast as there are only 3 available.
Meals will be primarily plant based but we cannot guarantee that they are vegan. Beer will be available on site for a nominal fee.

Should you wish to stay, you can camp with us over the long weekend where we hope to get a few bands and host a small “campfire sessions” mini camping music festival.

The workshop fee is $500 and includes your camping, food and entertainment as well as tickets for the “Campfire Sessions” for the long weekend. An additional fee of $250 to rent a cabin for the duration of the workshop. Cabin rental for the long weekend an additional cost.
