Eventbrite - Survival Engineering - Building Off Grid!

*EVENT RE-SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 2018 – Ability to register for Jan 2018 will be updated shortly!

Off-Grid and Eco-Construction concepts are focused on supporting the efforts of the Herbal Medic teams in the field.  The skill set needed for a thorough understanding of construction concepts starts with practical skills that are needed in everyday life.

This weekend hands-on class will cover the basics of construction skills, followed by an eco-building project of constructing an off-grid composting toilet structure.  Students will learn, from start to completion, the materials, tools and design components needed to build a safe and sanitary composting unit that is free from energy and water dependence.  Wherever possible, eco-building projects will work with salvaged or re-purposed materials.
