Cob Oven Workshop is CANCELED

Hi Everyone,

I have had to make the decision to cancel the cob oven workshop out at the Farley Center for July 11th and 12th.  One person had officially signed up as of today, and seeing how there is a massive amount of work involved prior to the workshop to get the platform built, materials found and hauled, etc., I have decided to cancel it.  Any one who has sent in a check (one person as of today’s mail) will be refunded asap.

Guild June Meeting on the 18th will be at a Permie Site outside of Verona

June 18th;  6-7:30 pm

At a mature Permaculture Site outside of Verona on Hwy. 92.

We will be focusing this visit to Martin’s land on his Natural Built Environment.  He has been a Natural Builder for many years and is taking his time to offer up some basics on how he did it, the wood on his land he used, etc., etc.

If you are interested in going please e-mail Kate at or text her at 608-213-2230 for specific directions.

We will be joined by some of our current PDC students after their class and then everyone is invited back to the Farley Center for a campfire.  The Farley Center address is 2299 Spring Rose Rd.  You could join us for just the fire also.
