Single Mom learning to build an earth bag dome in Eastern Oklahoma & educating locals about green building techniques!

I am a single mom that is trying to bring the green building technique of Earth Bag Construction to Eastern Oklahoma. I own a small lot at Lake Tenkiller in Cherokee County, Oklahoma where I am trying to build a small earth bag dome cabin.

My only help to date is my friend Michelle and her 3 children. I am using this project to educate locals who are interested in learning earth bag building technology to help them build green structures on their own land using the earth around them.

Being a single mom on a budget I am asking for some support in the project so that I can pass on this great building technique to an area that has never heard of it.

People have been very open minded and shown a lot of interest in the project but the weather hasn't always cooperated and we are behind schedule. I am paying for all of the expenses out of my own pocket. While I am glad to spread the word about earth bag building I need a little bit of help finishing with the expense of excavation so we can start throwing up walls as soon as possible.

We are taking pictures of the project and plan to put the experience on paper to help others change their lives and build their own dreams.
