Monthly Guild Gathering – Cob and Tiny Homes

 Come to the monthly SF Permaculture Guild gathering Wednesday, April 5th  from 6:30 P.M. – 9 P.M. to connect with values aligned allies in mutual support and celebration of our collective permaculture work in our fair city. 

Miguel Elliott will be our guest presenter.

After spending over ten years of natural building in countries ranging from Argentina, Guatemala, Africa, Thailand and around the US, Miguel Elliott aka “Sir Cobalot” has brought his skills to his hometown of Petaluma, California, a town with a rich history of natural adobe building.   Inspired and fascinated at an early age by the earthen ovens at General Vallejo’s old adobe home in Petaluma, Miguel now finds himself specializing in creating various living earth structures such as cob benches, cob ovens, adobe dome saunas and small huts.  Miguel spent nearly 4 years at the Isis Oasis Retreat center in Geyserville, where he built the Hobbit Hut, Gingerbread House, and several other cob structures around the property.   Using material directly from the earth, being local, non-processed, and healthy, it goes beyond the standards of green building.

Location: 

The Gazebo Room, California Pacific Medical Center, Davies Campus
The Gazebo is on the 1st floor of the South Tower. The South Tower is straight ahead as you enter the driveway. The driveway entrance is in the middle of Castro Street between 14th and Duboce Streets. You’ll see the entrance to the campus on your left. It’s the building that has the big lighted EMERGENCY ENTRANCE sign. If you enter on the ground floor, take the elevator UP to the first floor.

If you come by public transportation, take the N Judah to the Duboce Street stop and walk up towards Castro. If you drive, there’s a parking lot at the end of the driveway on your right, or you can try to find someplace on the street before entering the driveway.
