Cob Oven at the Wildflower Home

I was invited to teach a cob oven workshop at the Wildflower Home, a center for young mothers in crisis, whose mission is to help lead these women towards self-reliance.

I was quite nervous to be teaching in a foreign language, but it went quite well leading by demonstration and the women had a total blast.

    Better to teach such sustainable practices, rather than leading the women off to Walmart to learn how to purchase an oven, ipod or some other accutrement of consumerism.

    I wonder how teaching sustainability in a Third World environment made you feel? Seems we may have more to learn from them, then vice versa?
