Learn earthbag building in the Grenada Rainforest


Work/Stay Volunteer in Grenada’s Rainforest
Learn how to build Hyper Adobe Earthbags
6-8 week: Project Start Date July 01, 2016
We are putting together a team of hardworking volunteers with a sense of humour and adventure.
You will work and learn while participating in the building of an Earthbag House in Grenada’s Rainforest.

This is a unique opportunity to experience our genuine Caribbean lifestyle – while also learning natural building skills.
You will be immersed in the island culture and way of life. Working side-by-side with the locals and other international volunteers.
And – toward the end of the project – we will celebrate Grenada’s Carnival, an amazing island wide fete.
Jason and Laura will share their natural building experience with like-minded volunteers.
We will be using the newly developed Hyper-Adobe Earthbag technique, along with clay plasters and earthen floors.
Recycled glass bottle elements will be utilized along with other salvaged materials.
We hope to work with local bamboo as well.
The natural building techniques you learn will give you the skills necessary to build your own Earth Bag dwelling.
The building site is the spectacular slopes of Mt. Agnus, about 4 miles straight up from our seaside residence – Garden of Eden.
Garden of Eden is a Seaside B&B, consisting of the Main House – where our B&B guests are accommodated – and cottages, where volunteers are housed.
The cottages have comfy king-size beds, screened windows, private verandas overlooking the sea and cooling ocean breezes.
Although the cottages do not have electricity or running water, they are quite comfortable.
