We were so excited to build cob with the ARGC service members that we rushed the completion of our first stem wall. Tristan worked from 8am to 10:30pm and is now an expert stone mason.
Finally we got to slap on our first mix of cob!

A big thank you goes out to all the ARGC service members! You did some awesome work on your visit to CMAP that will carry on through the ages.
If you would like to play in the mud and build a long lasting, sustainable structure at the same time, just contact us! Bring anybody you want. Kids will love it! Bring your grandparents! Bring your boss! There is something everyone can do to contribute to this fun and worthwhile work!
If you are interested in serving with ARGC or getting a service member for your garden project, it is a great program that I highly recommend. Their website is here.
