Community Rebuilds invites groups of 16 interns to take part in a five-month program to learn the art of straw bale construction. Under the guidance of our natural building experts, interns will build two homes from foundation to finish -- taking part in forming the foundation, framing, straw bale installation, natural plastering, and finish details; with supplemental workshops on solar energy and permaculture. No experience in building is necessary. Our program structure is unique, as we are the only ones providing this education free of cost, while simultaneously providing energy-efficient, AFFORDABLE housing to local, income-qualifying residents.
Additionally, Community Rebuilds is located in one of the most spectacular areas of the United States -- Moab, UT. Nestled between the La Sal mountain range and the Colorado River, be prepared to spend five months of your life surrounded by world-class hiking, camping, climbing, skiing, rafting, kayaking, and breathtaking scenery.
