  1. I am an elementary art teacher in St. Johns County Florida. I teach at Palencia Elementary, a LEED certified Green School. I would LOVE to host a school workshop for my students but I just learned about this type of Sustainable/ green/cobb building and I would need some expert assistance for sure! Do you do school based workshops? THANKS!!!
