  • June 2: Introduction to Natural Building at Open Farm Day at The Mobile Moon Co-Op, 2:00-6:00 p.m. at 2551 S. Hempstead St., West Valley City. "Join us at The Moon farm for a day of hands-on workshopping! Learn about how to build with natural earthen plasters made on-site. Earthen structures are made of non-toxic, land-based materials: wood, sand, straw, and clay. Other minerals and fibers can be used to bring out different qualities in the project, but these are the basic elements of cob, adobe, strawbale, wattle and daub, and other 'natural building' techniques. The glass bottle outdoor kitchen (built 2020) and cob oven (2022) at The Moonstead Farm are community-built structures and it’s time to touch them up. Learn some basic recipes and skills for building with natural materials. Everyone will be invited to squish mud between their fingers and toes and practice the art, craft, and magic of natural building." To sign up for this ticketed event, click here
