About.

This 2 week course is a great introduction for beginners into Rocket Mass Heaters and Cob Work. We will go through practical techniques and the science behind it all. We have been building with Cob for over 4 years and have witnessed its benefits. This particular project will be the main heating source of our up and coming Greenhouse to provide year round organic sustainably grown food in Climate Zone 6.

We invite you to come learn and play with us as we all work towards cultivating a greener future for our planet!

Program.

The first few days we will learn about the science involved in rocket stove and mass heater designs as well as what it takes to build them. Within these days the basics of building with cob will be discussed as well. These first few days are intended to develop theoretical and practical knowledge on these natural building techniques so in the coming week and a half we can apply and practice all that we just learnt.  

The project entails installing a rocket mass heater in our greenhouse in Ontario, Canada to produce organically grown food year round. Covering the piping with cob will produce more mass, which will encourage the heat to remain inside for longer.

This is a great beginner course into rocket stove/mass heaters and cob. It will allow you to participate in the building process and connect you with other like hearted people that can help you excel in your projects. As well as introduce you into the world of permaculture and authentic relating, a little step towards a holistic lifestyle. 

We will be serving locally sourced organic plant based meals. Mostly vegetarian. About 5 meals during the course will have a fish or meat option (for you carnivores).

 A rustic farmland experience in between Montreal and Ottawa.
