JOIN IANTO AS A WEEKEND GARDEN APPRENTICE!!  Out of town volunteers please arrive between 4-6pm on Friday 21st and joing us for dinner.  Those coming locally please RSVP and come at 8am on Saturday morning...  Don't miss this chance to hang out with Ianto in the garden and learn from his amazing lifelong knowledge of successful gardening for 4 seasons!  From Garden to Table indeed.  A must for us all!!!


This is a spectacular site in a rain forest with huge trees. There are great views up the mountain and along our whitewater creek. Every day there will be a magical nature walk led by Linda and Ianto, the people who brought cob building to the USA and founders of the North American School of Natural Building, the FIRST natural building school in North America.
If this is your first time at Cob Cottage Company, we ask for a $100 donation for the work party overheads, half of which can be applied to the deposit for a workshop this year. Alumni and returning work party helpers are always welcome at no additional cost. Attendees must commit to a minimum of 3 whole working days. We try to keep attendance down to about ten people, so we'll prioritize those who are able to be here for at least 5 full days.

This is an inexpensive way to visit and learn from us. You can sleep in a cob cottage and spend time in other cob buildings for long enough to refine your own plans for building or redesigning your existing home/office/studio. You'll meet interesting people on the same quest, some from all over the world. We will eat gourmet food from our garden (which we all help to prepare), enjoy evenings together with fires and sometimes music.

Your stay here can be life-changing. It's good work and a party too!
