How do man made materials impact nature and human health?
What are the practical and affordable alternatives that serve them both?
This one-day workshop focuses on how conventional and earthen building impact the environment and our health. Presentations are followed by interactive discourses that explore hands-on solutions that are health-promoting, ecological, durable, energy efficient, and affordable. The tour of the Ecoheal site will convey many of these affordable alternatives that make mother nature smile.
