Natural Outdoor Kitchen Workshop
July 17-23, 2016
Troy, NY

Join Michael McDonough and a group of natural building enthusiasts in building an outdoor kitchen with materials from the land! We’ll use stone, earth, and wood to craft a small outdoor kitchen that shelters a cob pizza oven and food prep area.

We will:

Create a stone and rubble foundation
Build cob walls with local soil
Build and operate a cob oven
Learn about earth and lime plaster basics
Learn carpentry basics
Three farm fresh meals will be prepared onsite daily. Camping is available and encouraged. Evenings are unscheduled, providing time to explore Troy or sit around the campfire.

The site: The Vague Estates is set on 48 acres remarkably located less than two miles from downtown Troy. Adjacent to a
natural area with swimming holes and waterfalls, we have an outdoor shower and big beautiful garden.

Registration:¬†$850, email¬†[email protected]. Group rates or work/trade may be available upon inquiry.
