Hi, recently I've been reading up on natural building techniques. Are there any programs or people who have experience or knowledge about this in or around the SA area? I've looked into workshops nationwide, but they're too expensive and seem more like a short vacation than a fully informative program. I'd also enjoy learning how to incorporate plumbing and electric. I'm most interested in earthbag and cob, but anything would be greatly appreciated.

Did you look into CalEarth? They're in CA but it looks very informative from my own research. This is a great site for everything to do with earthbags. They give lots of instructions on building them ....earthbagbuilding .com

Good Luck and please post pictures when you get it finished

I would try contacting various landscape architects. They may be able to point you in the right direction.
