Natural Building: 1-Month Intensive (Aug 6 - 30)

Tue Aug 6 to Fri Aug 30, 2019, Peterborough, ON

program dates: August 6 – August 30

Endeavour’s one-month Natural Building Intensive puts you at the heart of a natural building project.

You will learn about the design and construction of modern natural buildings, using materials sourced from the local environment to create healthy, affordable and energy efficient shelter.

You will work with teachers and practitioners who are leaders in the field and work with fellow participants who are motivated and enthusiastic.

Join us for an experience that will give you the skills to tackle your own natural building projects!

Our one-month natural building intensive is designed to give you hands-on experience with all the key building materials, systems and strategies for natural building. We will undertake a small-scale project that ensures participants get to experience all stages of construction.

• straw bale building
• hempcrete
• timber and wood framing
• natural plasters
• earthen floors
• recycled and repurposed materials, and more…

Classroom modules in the natural building intensive include:

• design for natural materials
• building science for natural structures
• material sourcing and assessment

Participants will also tour natural buildings in the Peterborough area and meet with builders and homeowners in the region.
