About.

An experience in ecological building!

Come join the Fireflies for a extra-ordinary tiny hOMe build using natural local materials and permaculture principles.
Together we will be constructing a tiny cob house, with a rubble trench, rock and lime mortar stem wall, cob walls, wattle and daub, glass bottle mosiacs, natural plasters, and more!

This workshop includes camping, 3 amazing vegetarian meals a day, yoga classes, snacks, hot showers, and experienced hands-on instruction from 3 different facilitators here at Bahia de Santiago.

5-day workshop option accompanied by a therapeutic yoga series exploring different systems of the human body and their relationships to natural building.


Taking place right after Cosmic Convergence music festival, in the same neighbourhood, this workshop is a great way to decompress and start the new year learning some AWEsome new skills!
