Clay Mountain

IMG_0568We got clay this week. 10 tons of it! Big thanks to the Stancill family for their generous donation. The Stancills have been part of the WSB community for a long time and donated clay to build the earthoven many years ago as well. We’ll be using this batch to fix up the earthoven and build a cob bench in the garden this Spring! I would like this to be a community workshop & project. Please let me know if you’re interested in getting your hands & feet muddy! Have a nice weekend.
