Students from tribes throughout the country can join Lakota Solar Enterprises, EARTHinBLOCKS, and Trees, Water & People for a hands-on training in making and building with compressed earth blocks. Compressed earth blocks are a sustainable construction material that uses high pressure to create bricks from soil, clay, and a tiny amount of cement.

Key components of this training include mixing ratios, the use of a compressed earth block machine to make bricks, and designing and constructing a naturally well-insulated and efficient earth block building.

  1. This is off topic, but trying to prevent a war in Ukraine. Please disseminate the link /video of German TV’s equivalent to 60 Minutes, ARD Monitor’s, report about the over 100 sniper victims in Kiev. This report contradicts both Obama and Ukraine new government on who was behind the mass murder, and may prevent a civil war in Ukraine. Please email to everyone on your email contact list and more. Thank you,
