Natural Rendering 2011

The Natural Rendering workshop held June /July 2011 is the last stage in the Cob Building Project. The building now has a roof, walls, and a floor all made from recycled and environmentally friendly materials. It took 6 years to complete, but we got there in the end! Feel free to come down and have a look at it at he farm (Deen City Farm, London).
