I have always wanted to take a CalEarth workshop but time and distance have made it impossible up to this point. Having this available online is truly exciting! I have ordered a roll of superadobe and plan to build and plaster a garden bed in my yard. I still hope to make it in person some day, but until then I am happy to be connected in this way.
