Natural Building Courses 2023
Immerse Yourself. Bambú. Jan 9th - 16th
POSTPONED. New dates coming soon!
Come to EcoMaste and experience the abundance of life in the jungle. Here you will have an opportunity to commune with nature, ground yourself, enjoy our nature trails, cascading river, harvest fresh foods from the property, vibrant delicious plant based meals, and learn the skills you need to build with bamboo as well as natural materials.
Our goal is to give students a transformational and regenerative education so that they can be empowered to create a lifestyle rooted in sustainability and collaboration with nature.
We will be learning how to harvest and cure bamboo. Also exploring some geometry shapes, feeling and designing with bamboo. There is an option to stay for one more week to put the knowledge to the test. During this time, we will build a small outdoor shower structure using natural construction techniques utilizing bamboo, adobe and its combinations.
If you would like to become an intern or apprentice, we have 2-6 month programs which includes education, lodging, and all meals.
