Natural Building Workshop
January 30, 2015 - February 1, 2015
The Fruition Center for Thrivability is diving into an abundant new year with creative, cooperative and inspiring workshops in natural building. We are going to begin in the heart of Finca Fruicion, the Fruition Center. The Fruition Center is an international impact center, and plays a tremendous role in the developing community that is Finca Fruicion. It is here that we share festivities, meals, meetings, relaxing hammock time, indoor gardening, dormitory spaces and the knowledge and wisdom of permaculture with locals and people from around the the world. Connect with the community, explore local Costa Rican culutre and get experiencial learning. When you come, we can gather together to manifest a magnificent new space, more beautiful and complete, while combining traditional technologies with recycling and symbolic art! All experience levels are welcome to enjoy.

Waddle and daub
