Welcome to Wild Earth!

Wild Earth Builders is a collaborative of teachers, designers, and natural builders. We seek to empower individuals and communities to meet their 21st Century housing, energy & food needs in creative, beautiful and holistic ways.  Our workshops and projects incorporate ecologically-based design principles and locally available, non-toxic, low-tech building materials such as cob, straw bale, earth bag and natural plasters.  Our passion is to provide opportunities for people to reconnect to their playful creativity and innate ability to shelter themselves, through fun, family-geared, hands-and-feet-on learning.  Come join us for an upcoming workshop!
