Environmental Studies major Maddy Hunt has dedicated herself to expanding the adoption of natural building techniques. She teaches the ENST 123 Natural Building course, where she has been leading students in developing the Reclamation Station. A section of the grounds of the Campus Center for Appropriate Technology, the Station collects and provides the community reusable building materials. It features a retaining wall made of rammed earth and tires, and a shed with a demonstration hempcrete wall. Hunt is also competing in the Sunstone CSU Startup Launch Competition, working with an Indigenous housing initiative and natural homebuilders to bring hempcrete building technology to Humboldt County as a way to address housing and fire safety challenges with a carbon-negative building material.
