Good lord, I have been terrible with keeping this blog up to date, I never even mentioned the first free construction workshop.
About ten people involved, three days to source materials and tools, six days to complete, NZ$110 total cost. Thanks to the Riverside community for hosting and making available the workspace. It was originally going to be taking place at the Tui community over in Golden Bay, but that fell apart at the last moment while I was attending the New Zealand national permaculture hui at Riverside, so I was luckily able to lash something together there on the fly. It actually turned out a stroke of luck, as trying to do all this over in Tui would've been a nightmare due to lack of access to people and resources.
