For a second year we co-delivered with the Cal-Earth teaching staff a combined Superadobe Earth Building and Permaculture Design Certificate Course. At the close of our course we were pleased to host Geoff and Nadia Lawton of PRI Australia who shared their work in desert environments with us in a workshop that was also open to the general public. Here is a quick picture summary of this October 2012 training and of Geoff and Nadia’s visit.
These combined Superadobe and PDC Courses take place in Hesperia, CA, at the
Cal-Earth campus. Class might be held any place on site, including here outside
of Earth One, Cal-Earth’s flagship building.

Cal-Earth Institute and Midwest Permaculture are proud to announce a special event at the very end of our joint training program. Geoff Lawton of the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia and his wife Nadia will be giving a full day workshop on desert permaculture applications.
Midwest Permaculture and Cal-Earth have invited the Lawtons to share of their experience with desert climates. More specifically, we will ask Geoff and Nadia what lessons could be applied from their "Greening the Desert" experience to the Cal-Earth site which sits along the edge of the Mojave Desert in Hesperia, California.
