implementing solutions to address the pressing environmental and social

how to design and build eco-cultural structures, which conserve, preserve
and responsibly steward the Earth’s finite resources, and our shared
waters, soils, and air. As our hands-on component, the group will build
either a seasonally-dynamic shade structure, a solar dehydrator, or both
(time/participants permitting)!
