Event Description

Join Upcycle Santa Fe and Harvey Lacey, inventor and machinist, for 3 days of Ubuntu-Blox Workshops at Earth Nurse in Santa Fe.

Ubuntu-Blox are super insulating building blocks (r-value of 45!) made from waste styrofoam, plastic bags, and polypropylene twine. Harvey developed and tested the building system in Haiti as a humanitarian response to the 2010 earthquake. Since then he has been furthering the upcycled building method and it has been adopted by many people around the USA and abroad.

The workshops will be held from August 15th to 17th, and will run from 9am to 5pm. The cost per day is 25$ or all three days for 60$. A vegetarian meal will be offered on each of these days.

August 15: Learn how to build a wooden lever-driven waste styrofoam compression machine.
August 16: Learn how to make Ubuntu-Blox - compressed building blocks made of waste styrofoam.
August 17: Learn how to build a simple wall structure using Ubuntu-Blox.
