Touched by the Hand of CobA ton of pictures and only a bit of text from our cob course at Edwards & Eve Cob Building in August this year. Took me a while to write up again, mostly because I was busy doing some actual work on the plans and the oven :-) and I do hope it’ll convince you all to go attend a course yourselves.

Mound in the makingMy very first small and very experimental hugelkultur bed. Probably sowed and planted too early, and I’m pretty sure it’ll lose a lot of volume at some point. But it was so much fun!
