CalEarth Long Term Apprentice program
My addiction to SuperAdobe had grown from an interest in the back of my mind, into a full-blown life mission after my amazing 3 months spent at CalEarth, the home of SuperAdobe in California. It was my first major expedition into the world, and it couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. I learnt more than I ever could have imagined, and the teachers and staff there are so close to my heart still.
SuperAdobe began as a personal desire to build something cheaply and creatively, and grew into a want to teach and spread the technology as far as possible. I hope to have SuperAdobe in the common vernacular by the end of my time here.
I studied alongside 3 other wonderful apprentices who are like brothers to me now, and we all learnt a huge amount. It was so clear the vision of Nadirs, the visionary inventor of SuperAdobe, although he passed in 2011 his dreams were still so clear and palpable. The staff and his children’s desire to continue his vision was infectious, and I couldn’t help falling in love with the technology and implementation. It changed my life immeasurably, and I hope to continue growing and learning from it for years to come.
