The Fourth Pig believes education is crucial part of promoting more sustainable shelters. On occasion we host presentations and offer hands-on workshops. We can also be hired as educators/ information consultants on projects involving green and natural building. In some circumstances education workshops can be incorporated into construction projects. You can find our upcoming public events on our events page

In addition, we recommend the Endeavour Centre as a great resource for learning sustainable building skills.

We also publish an e-newsletter, "Force of Nature" about natural and green building and sustainable energy. You can sign up here.

We can offer workshops and consult on:

  • Passive House, zero-carbon building, net zero energy building

  • the basics of natural building

  • the basics of straw bale construction

  • the basics of alternative energy design

  • making and applying earth plaster
