Rammed earth course with Ulf Henningsson

The 13th of April we had a rammed earth course with eco-builder Ulf Henningsson (ekoulf.se).  The idea was to further develop our knowledge of using earth as a building material and to introduce it to the rest of the Jordstad group. We used fiber such as straw, hemp and wood. After doing comparative testing of different material mixes we made two larger objects, outdoor furniture that can serve as planters, seats or tables and they are stackable. The planters shell is only 8cm thick, which we expected to be quite fragile but they have already survived a ride on a pickup truck through Gothenburg.
