[Cob] desert brush uses? (submission)C. W. destructo667 at yahoo.com

howdy, i'm out in north west arizona and just had my projected living area cleared and graded. i just raked out all the desert brush into an area and had the quandry of how to put the sticks to use...? i had the thought that some of the smaller stalks might be a good substitute for straw and the larger sticks might make good waddle daub or thatch, however these are not things i am familiar with. i took courses at cal-earth (calearth.org) for rammed earth bags and know just a little about adobe, but cob isn't something i've yet tried. another experiment for when my well has been completed, i suppose. mainly though, i was hoping to get other people's thoughts or ideas on what practical use these nice little desert dried brush might have- rather than roasting marshmallows on? aloha, c.d.
