Position: Eco Home Build Volunteers
Location: Dinorwic / Dryden, Northwestern Ontario

Hello, wonderful!

Thank you for clicking on this posting! I am hosting workshops for sustainable & alternative building methods. There will be a focus on earthbag construction, cob and plasters, passive solar design, wastewater recycling, insulation, etc. So much more, I'm sure you have an idea!

Workshops will begin once other building items are in place, such as trenching and foundations / stem walls.

You are more than welcome to come help with the prep work also! I will be performing most of the work manually, with hand tools and what is available from the land.

I am also looking for donations of unwanted / recycled construction materials. These materials will be put to use in the building methods and workshops and will go a long way. Everything from lumber, screws and nails to foam insulation, windows and doors willl be needed.

The site is walking distance from the town of Dinorwic in NW Ontario. Dinorwic is a 30 minute drive from Dryden, Ontario and 3 hours from Thunder Bay and Winnipeg.

I will be breaking ground Summer 2017. Please come help.

If you have any building tools, feel free to bring them along (it will help!). If not, we will set you up with some.

My email is:
