Join us for a unique and hands-on building experience, where you will feel the satisfaction of building with your own two hands.
You will learn how to build with Cob, a natural building material that is made of clay, sand, straw, and water. This technique has been used for thousands of years to construct homes, buildings, and a variety of other structures.
Our plan is to build cob walls for the kitchen and storage areas in our pavilion.

You will also be able to add some love and care to Permaculture Noosa’s brand-new Pavillion Project. Our goal for this project is to provide a place where people can meet, work and share the gardens, pick crops, cook, and prepare food in the pavilion, and then leave with seedlings for their own gardens! The vision is to create a hub for building climate change resilience, promoting education and awareness and encouraging community cohesion through the joy of gardening. It is designed to accommodate all age groups and activities with a focus on inclusion for the elderly and gardeners who live with a disability.
Make new friends along the way. Get outside, get some exercise, and contribute to making something meaningful for your community. Suitable for all ages and abilities.
