You have just opened the door to a wonderful, sustainable, eco-friendly reality! Cob buildings create an environment that is nourishing to the soul. Becky Bee is is in love with cob and so became the founder and mother of Groundworks, a cob building company. Becky shares her experience in workshops using natural materials of clay, sand, straw, mud and alternative building materials. She helps people make hand-sculpted environmentally friendly housing. Becky offers hands on workshops for co-ed groups as well as women only events. It is in this way that Becky, who, "Wants to make sense in a world where many things don't", makes her contribution. Becky is author of the Cob-Builders Handbook and You Can Make the Best Hot Tub Ever!
