A 21-day Earthbag Building Workshop
Building Earthquake Resilient Homes for the Rainbow Children’s Home
In Paamei Village, near Pokhara, Nepal
January 5-25, 2018
More info coming soon. FEEL FREE TO INQUIRE AT email@example.com
In the wake of the Spring 2015 earthquakes in Nepal, there is great need for the rebuilding of houses and schools using earthquake resilient techniques. This January, Woven Earth will be hosting our third service-learning comprehensive workshop on Superadobe (earthbag) construction including certification. During this workshop we will build housing for the Rainbow Children’s Home & Organic Farm near Pokhara, in Paamei village. This course will give a solid foundation of theory and practice in Earthbag building and will include various other lessons in Permaculture Design.
Sliding Scale: $700- 950
Cost includes food, accommodation, transport, educational materials and certification. Your contribution will help fund the houses we build. The more you give, the more we’ll be able to support the Rainbow Children’s Home and other communities in need. Please give from your heart, and give what you can.
Most of us will be staying in tents. Please bring your own sleeping bag. We will provide tents and a pad to sleep on. If you are not comfortable sleeping in a tent for the duration of the workshop, we can arrange accommodation with a local family.

Nepal Resilience Project
Resilience can be defined as the ability to return to a state of balance after some disturbance. It is the capacity to “bounce back” or even to absorb shock, bend, and return to the original shape without damage. Nepal will recover, and not only recover, but there are opportunities at this point for the country to gain even more long term resilience and sustainability. Nepal Resilience Project was created by Woven Earth to be a unifying network of people and organizations dedicated to creating a more resilient future for Nepal by means of sustainable and regenerative methodologies.
