Earth building camp

Course Description

Why learn this course?

Earth building camp is an exciting educational program where children learn how to build furniture using earth. Come, get your hands dirty and indulge yourself in a week of design and hands-on construction experience at the farm!!

Architecture and its environmental impact: The construction industry is one of the world’s greatest contributors to the greenhouse gases and in some countries, forms 50% of the total carbon dioxide emissions. The recent economic growth had led to a construction boom and thereby the emission load of CO2. The need for eco-friendly buildings and the use of natural materials is crucial now more than ever.

The rise of Consumerism: We are becoming a highly resource and labour dependent society. From building houses to furniture, we buy them all. This has hampered the learning process of our society. The scope of problem-solving and the process of exploration has been slowed down.

Building or making things is an attitude. The ability to see a table, chair or a small pencil box and then identifying the process of building is a fundamental nature of a builder. Through the Earth building program, kids learn to observe the things around them and understand how they are made and how to build it with minimal impact on the environment.
