If you want to volunteer on this project, I suggest you send me a message on this site (select "Messages" on the Profile tab). If you leave a comment on this page, I may not see it for a while - I don't get a notification by email.

Hi Richard, its Gemma again - im in Italy after having received funding to do a course in teaching lime and clay plastering, like Jennie who also posted here. But am wondering how best now to maintain momentum with this and am thinknig to come back to the UK for summer season plastering work - do you have all the volunteers youre looking for? With expertise in plastering in particular, or mgiht i be useful to help you just with that if i come back and come to your proejct..?
Im skypeable under the name gemmascugnizza it would be good to talk!

I am planning on traveling though the E.U. and U.K. this fall and would love to help out with your project. I am a fast learner and a hard worker and am very much interested in sustainable, tiny home living. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Richard. Apologies for the SPAM, it is an issue we have been dealing with.

I have deleted the comments and accounts they came from. It would be great to continue to share your ongoing projects with the international POOSH community!

Hey Michael. Thanks for your message and for tidying up this page. So - just two spam postings in the last seven days, so it's an improvement but not a solution. I'm a big fan of The POOSH and what you are doing, but this is a problem and I would remove this entire project page if I was able to do so. There are still links to my project blogs on my POOSH profile, (and I am able to moderate the comments on the blog.)
