Personal email: “Hey, I just realized it was through your site that my sweetie (Andres) & I found the community we’re currently involved in…One Community. Here was the link on your site that got us there. And what’s so cool is Logan (Laughing Heart land steward) is the one who shared your website that led us to One Community! I share all this with you as I am ever more fascinated with the unfolding and all the overlapping connections within…so thank you for your part!!” – Ember

  1. Hi, I am still considering attending this workshop. I will be away til the 8th of July, if there is still space available I may make it. I have a connection with OneCommunity and have filled out the extensive questionnaire and have been persuing my desire to live with less isolation and more sharing. This workshop could be a way for me to discover more about onecommunity and get hands on experience building earthbag structures. It could also be an opportunity to pay to be a construction worker. Not exactly sure if I am being invited to be a laborer or if this is truly an educational workshop? Perhaps you can inform me as to the true intent. Thanks, I always seem to need to get to the truth of certain questions that arise so I can move forward fully commited. Douglas

    • Good point. People charging for workshops should deliver an educational experience. Otherwise participants might as well join a free event like the one going on in Florida. (See Florida Dome Home Blog.)
