Join us to learn about energy efficient, sustainable building and affordable housing in Moab, UT! This is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on work experience while serving the Moab community. Term 1 will feature notable author in natural building, Dan Chiras, in a hands-on workshop learning about earthen lime plaster.

Free communal housing, monthly food stipends, access to bulk foods, and valuable build experience! No experience necessary.

You will be helping low-income home owners fulfill their sweat equity hours on the Moab Area Community Land Trust. Depending on the stage of the build upon arrival, BEES will work on the following tasks:
