Middle East Trip

For all my life, the ongoing conflict in the Middle East has always troubled me greatly, and I have always felt the urge to do my part to help restore sanity.  This Winter, I have been invited to come to Jerusalem to build cob ovens and benches in community gardens there.  There is a garden built over a bomb shelter where we will be building our first oven.  in addition to offering my own styles of natural building, I am hoping to learn some valuable techniques from them as well.
