was a production called the "Trail of Tears" at the Cherokee Heritage Center

Moon."   We encouraged everyone to see it.

Project 6:
The Kenwood Community Cultural Ground, Spring 2008
Over $61,000
We will be building two restrooms using straw bale construction techniques with composting
toilets, and rainwater catchment and greywater systems.  The building will be wheelchair
accessible, according to ADA guidelines.  The rainwater collection system will catch a
sufficient amount of water from the roof to supply the two bathroom sinks and traditional
gardens.  The greywater drainage from the bathroom sink will eventually provide irrigation
for a basketry garden containing plants used for construction and dyes for Cherokee baskets.
The compost and fertilizer from the toilets, when properly processed, will be used to amend
the soil in the same gardens after the training, and construction of the buildings are

Kitchen / Pavilion Phase:

We will also be building a large structure for cooking, serving and dining, and for Language
and Culture classes. This building will also utilize environmentally friendly systems
including; solar powered lights, a solar powered fridge, rainwater catchment system, sand
filtration system, greywater system, and solar water pump.  We will also be using straw bale
building methods to construct this building.

Rainwater Catchment and Greywater Systems

The roofs from the restrooms and cook shack pavilion will each be used as collecting
surfaces for all of the water needs of the sinks in the two bathrooms and kitchen throughout
the dry season.  Training participants will learn about and construct a greywater and
rainwater catchment system from the refuse water out of the sinks into the future garden

Infrastructure Phase:  Roads – pavement/graveling of the roads

Exiting Kenwood Road to the Cultural Ground is currently dirt, narrow (only one car can go
in any one direction) and the incline/grade is steep at one point.  To address the
accessibility and the passage of automobiles or other vehicles (R.V., etc) the road should
be paved to the top.  From the top of the hill to the cultural ground the use of gravel is

This project will also be a training opportunity for others interested in learning about
Environmental planning and building techniques.   If
