Compressed Earth Block Machine
We want to research the feasibility of using compressed earth blocks here in our temperate deciduous forest biome. There are conflicting opinions about whether this method should be used here. We will purchase a small, portable machine to help make blocks from a company in Texas. Blocks will be made from earth here on the farm, both stabilized and unstabilized. We propose the construction of a smokehouse and a dovecote to test claims of fireproof and waterproof properties over time. The machine will be made accessible to the community for a modest rental fee. Local supporters who make a gift of $100 or more will have priority access for their projects.
