In South America, the word for work parties is "Minga" ...We love to do Mingas! It is a win win for everyone...people get to learn a valuable skill while the structure can get built much quicker with lots of folks positive energy embedded into the structure. We offer at least 4 workshops per year. If you would like to host a workshop on your property, and help gather your friends to come participate, please let us know and we can set something up. In a weekend workshop, we can build an earthen oven, bench or small structure. A second workshop is offered a few weeks later once the structure is dry to apply the finish plaster. Many muddy hands and feet make light work!
