Two-tier yurt by Bill Coperthwaite in Oregon

Posted March 9th, 2010  by Kiko Denzer on Chelsea Green’s blog at:

“Here’s the lovely, two-tier yurt that Bill Coperthwaite helped us build last October. It’s on the grounds of the Ancient Arts Center near Alsea, just a long leap over a couple of ridges, into the next drainage south of us (the Alsea River). We’ll finish the woven willow and mud walls this May. If you want to come help, we’ll be having two workshops, 1st and last weekends in May…”

One Response to Two-tier yurt by Bill Coperthwaite in Oregon

  1. Bill Coperthwaite wrote a book a few years ago titled, "A Handmade Life", recommended to all who aspire to leave the world as we know it behind. The greedy corporations, elites, and our two faced self centered politicians want us to fall in line with their bankrupt system because it only makes them richer. This book helps to lead the way away from their life and helps to establish a better world for us to explore. Love not money will make you richer.
