This is a four week workshop comprised of two separate projects.  One in Ambler, PA and one in Tamaqua, PA. Daily, Weekly and Full Session attendance available.

The Ambler project is a ‘Tiny Earthship’ greenhouse which will be the first Earthship project within a major city in the U.S. to receive a building permit.

The Tamaqua project will be the construction of a grey water and black water system to help a visitor center deal with sewage issues and lack of toilet facilities for the faculty.

There will be both hands on training and classroom training.  The hands on will be at the site with an Instructor at all times focusing on the construction techniques as well as project management and safety. The classroom time will be a combination of slide presentations, hand outs and chalk board lessons.

The grey water and black water project will be mostly hands on.  Most of the water classes will be taught prior to arriving at the site.
