In this two day workshop you will learn how to install an earthen floor, or "poured-adobe" floor from locally sourced materials. Learn about the materials, process and durability of these beautiful floors and leave with the skills and knowledge to install your own.

 

This workshop is located at the Sage Oasis Retreat Center, located near Hot Springs Montana. Attendees will Join Katherine and Daniel Ray of Spiritwood Natural Building to install an earthen floor in an existing greenhouse with the purpose of providing a healthy and natural floor for yoga and meditation.
