Bamboo Construction Course: May 16-18

Posted by Dave Collins on May 13, 2014, 7:08 pm

Tierralegre Institute will be offering a bamboo construction course starting this Friday, May 16 at 5:00 p.m. and going through Sunday, May 17. We will cover the cultivation and treatment of bamboo and the basic methods for building with it. The instructor will be Mayolo Hernández from Puebla, one of the experts on bamboo construction in Mexico. Included are all materials, two breakfasts (Sat. and Sun.) and two lunches (Sat. and Sun.). The course will be taught in Spanish, but we do have some English-as-a-first-language speakers in the course, and I will be translating. The cost for the course is $2,300 pesos.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions and/or would like to reserve a spot. I can be reached by e-mail:, or cell: (315) 104-5442

Don´t miss this incredible opportunity!
