The Mojave Center is expanding its educational center.  It has always been a dream of ours to have multiple building sites in different climates to demonstrate how different types of natural building live in different environments.  

We have a new build site, but we need to get it ready to build on. We would love your help in various earthworking projects such as building check dams, water management swales, overall site set up, trimming trees and shrubs and everything else that goes into developing a RAW piece of land!  

June 16 - July 4th

7am - 12ish, 6pm - 8pm sessions

- Water catchment basins shaping

-Watershed management

-Earth Bag Check Dams in Wash

-Tree cutting and shrub trimming

-Clearing and leveling land for earth dome!

** we will not be building a dome for this volunteer opportunity but we will be using earth bags**

The next Mojave Center location is nestled in the serene landscapes of Southern Arizona. 1 hour southeast of Tucson, Arizona. Surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Sky Islands section of the Sonoran Desert, participants can expect to embark on a journey of discovery and inspiration.

The workshop site is a raw piece of land. The land will be the first expansion of the Mojave Center's second campus! This campus gets twice as much rain as our Mojave Campus as it will be another example of natural buildings in a different ecosystems. 

Our workshop offers the unique opportunity to engage with nature firsthand, as we explore the rugged terrain, lush canyons, and vibrant flora and fauna that define this enchanting region. 

Temps: The land sits right under 5000ft of elevation. Temps in June will not exceed 100 degrees. 

Exact building location will be sent after rsvp
