Communities on the frontlines of the crisis are remaking our cities to shift away from the extractive economy that is killing our peoples and eroding the planet we depend on. Conventional building, construction and development projects are highly extractive, exploitative, and toxic. The structures created typically work against nature rather than with nature.

Structures built using natural building methods and materials, like cob, are ecologically sound and help reconnect our collective labor to sustaining the web of life on Earth.

Join us to “Build with Nature” as we learn natural building methods and techniques by putting our work together to install a cob bench at Acta Non Verba, a great urban based farm project that serves the East Oakland community. The training will be led by Timo Granzotti, an experienced natural builder. Participants will gain valuable skills that can be utilized to remake our neighborhoods and communities in the face of the climate crisis.
