We will teach you how to dig the earth right beneath your feet and transform it into beautiful and lasting forms, such as raised bed gardens, garden walls, retaining walls and more. Once you complete this course you will understand how these same techniques are used to build houses, meditation centers and entire eco-villages using techniques that are sustainable, affordable, non-toxic and great fun!
