Dr. Elaine Ingham is currently Found of President and Director of Research for Soil Foodweb Inc., a business that grew out of her Oregon State University research program and Her research is on:.
— What organisms are present in the soil and on the foliage of your plants?
— Which organisms benefit which types of plants?
— Which organisms harm plants?
— How can these organisms be managed to grow plants with the least expensive inputs into the system while maintaining soil fertility?
Behind her user-friendly approach lies a wealth of knowledge gained from years of research into the organisms which make up the soil food web. Her goal is to translate this knowledge into actions that ensure a healthy food web that promotes plant growth and reduces reliance on inorganic chemicals. Elaine also offers a pioneering vision for sustainable farming, improving our current soils to a healthier state, without damaging any other ecosystem.

Cob Building Workshops
We conduct hands-on research on natural building methods and materials, testing our own buildings by living in them.
Through our sharing of this knoweldge, we help empower ordinary people to build their own houses at moderate cost and help others become professionals in natural construction.
By mail and phone, and through publications and tours, we supply information, support and inspiration for people to make healthy choices about buildings.
Our inspiration comes from direct observation of Nature, and from the wisdom of traditional cultures. We are committed to deconsumerizing, to reducing the flow of cash, resources and waste, and helping others to do the same. We work with a wide range of natural materials. Numerous cob demonstration buildings all over North America are now open to visitors. Tours of the demonstration buildings in Coquille Oregon are available at set times or by appointment as no one resides on the property, so we need to make arrangements for someone to meet you for a tour. Please call the office number to schedule one.

Sustainable Living for a Better World
We have relocated in Oregon and are developing an “urban homestead”/permaculture site!
And once again, as land steward and instructor, we hope to live and demonstrate a way to live on the Earth in a way that takes care of the Earth, and people, and can produce a surplus to share. A conscious effort is made to introduce ways of thinking about the design of an entire site, while building and gardening and conserving water and other resources. All the elements will serve many functions, and each is a part of the design of the “whole site”. Using permaculture strategies, we will offer consultations on whole site design, & sustainable living techniques, which includes building with natural materials, as well as rain water harvesting, food forests and gardens, land and building restoration & more.
Workshops and training will be offered, as well as general “how-to do-it-yourself” information and links to valuable local resources, and materials for building a real home, creating a continuing and known source of healthy, organically grown food for your table and to share with others. We will offer classes (one day and weekend workshops) on a variety of sustainable living topics. Classes will also be offered through the Linn Benton Community College branch in the area. Internships and work exhange will be offered, please inquire by email.
