Workshop 1 – Concrete Blocks

Our first construction began with the members of the new construction co-operative learning how to make strong concrete blocks from start to finish. Anne and Berthony went through  mixing right proportions of sand, cement and water, thoroughly mixing and compacting and leaving them to cure. They will need to dry slowly and will be ready for us to use on the houses in a month.
