A Glorious Cob Mob

Eleven hardy souls gathered from far and near on 4/8-9 to mix up several dozen batches of cob by foot and hand and start building the walls of the little building looking out over the eastern field.  A big shout out to Greg for his wonderful guidance and the rest of the crew: Matt (Greg’s apprentice), Amantha (special thanks for traveling the farthest), Steve, Geri, Abraham (special thanks for supplying 500 watt solar generator, and amazing baked goods), Chris, Jeremy, Paul (special thanks for hauling straw bales), and Ginny.

Two more weekend mobs are planned for 4/22-23 and 4/29-30.  An RSVP to Randy (if you haven’t already) is much appreciated.  Those who confirm will get an additional message closer to the dates with necessary details.  More info on the project is available  here.
