Announcing Papercrete Summer 2005

Joyce will share over twenty-five years of green design and development experience as well as her enthusiasm for building with

Papercrete is an innovative material utilizing up to 80% recycled paper in combination with clay, sand, and cement. It handles wet-dry cycles easily, resists mold, can be nearly fire proof, is an excellent insulator, and adds mass to a building as well. It is a great material for the Pacific Northwest as well as drier climates.

Beginning July 3, 2005, a papercrete building and design course will be offered in the Trinity Mountains of Northern California. This six-week course will offer hands-on papercrete building experience led by a skilled natural builder, integrated with a design studio offering an introduction to residential architecture and site planning.

"Have Time For Your Art"

We found a great little village 9 miles outside of Silver City, New Mexico. The place is called Santa Clara and the home prices average around $50,000.

Most places have large yards for gardens and vegetables and Fort Bayard National Park is just across Highway 180. There are even some empty warehouse type buildings downtown. This could be a great artist's community.

Come visit us!

If anyone is interested in living in the country, contact me. I am full of the good country living. When it comes to Country that's my nick name "country." ("A good tasting pumpkin and cream cheese pie.";)Every body calls me country. I'll full your life with country living flowers and when your friends see you again they would notice a glow on you face. Just tell they that Country just had bless you. I can blow green glass off the grounds faster than a plower and grow up fruits and vegetables like fertilizer. I can roast a whole pig or cow faster than you blink your eyes.
I can show a green environment better than environmental protection and you enjoying your country vacation or permanant residence stay on the finest estate in the country. I provide you with things to do as if the country belongs to you or as if you were in the country but on another planet. The country life will never leave you and you will never leave the country. You and the country will do a few country dances and when its over, your shout the victory on the old country in America. And if another person ask you how you got here, here in the country, tell them that "The winds of Love" by Poet Darlena blow by you. "WOW" hee-haw!
