Earthbag Workshop in Missouri — 9 Comments

  1. Hello,
    We are also lplanning an Earthbag cabin in Missouri next year. Curious if anyone has any advice on where to source bulk Scoria, pumice, perlite, vermiculite or rice hulls?? It gets cold here.
    We are in the upper half, very near Iowa. And not far from Illinois.
    Any ideas would be appreciated

    • Kyle, you might check with local landscape supply companies or Redi-mix concrete companies for these materials. Rice hulls can often be found in places where rice is harvested and processed, mostly in the south.

  2. I really want to host a workshop to build earthbags.. I live in missouri. Any info on how to do this would be appreciated

      There are numerous websites that promote natural building workshops. Post your announcement on as many as possible. Plan 6-9 months in advance so people have time to prepare. Plan the workshop so it’s convenient for as many people as possible (summer and during student breaks). Keep the cost low so people can afford it! Study other groups who provide workshops to see what they do.
