Our first Building Brothers workshop – how to build using recycled tires and rammed earth. Member David Sepkowski instructed this method of building made popular by Michael Reynolds, the Garbage Warrior. Over the course of 3 days we put in 12 layers of tires – that’s over 150 tires that each contain about 3-4 wheelbarrows of dirt! A lot of work but a lot of reward! That wall of tires is earthquake proof and now that the ground has been leveled, the side yard of this Cumberland home is a fruit tree orchard and vegetable garden.
