Cobb Workshop – A Mud Service Journey in Kenya, Africa

COB workshop

Serve and learn with Kate and Expanding Opportunities.

Kate\s Cobb WorkshopServe and learn with Kate and Expanding Opportunities. This is a service journey to build a new chicken coop for JWHS. Due to the location of the current chicken coop and the insecurity of the chickens, we have been unable to have chickens for over a year. Come help the children have eggs and meat again and learn the wonderful old world skill for new world construction.

Kate Ellen has been working with cobb, a mud and straw mix, for several years. (see her short bio). From foundation to roof, you will learn mud building skills that can be applied to most any use from oven to home.

You can join our pre-planned Service Journey which includes a day long safari or you can come independently and only attend the workshop.

Come from anywhere and design your own Service Journey Adventure.

 

The full pre-planned adventure requires your flight from anywhere in the world to arrive on January 1 2020. It is a great way to start your new year. You arrive on January 1st and catch upon your jet lag in Nairobi .
