Straw Bale Workshop, June 6 -7

Volunteer Coordinator extraordinaire Nicole Davis has setup up a Building with Straw Bale workshop at Diamond Mountain for this summer, June 6 and 7. Expert straw baler builder Jon Ruez will be leading the workshop, showing all how to use this efficient and sustainable material to make retreat cabins and homes. In her message Nicole says:
In two days, you will see the site go from a foundation alone to a house with walls and the skeleton of a roof. You will be instructed and participate in stacking, securing and shaping bales, and may observe and assist with the installation of pre-made roof pieces.

For more info and to sign up, visit the Straw Bale Workshop page on the Diamond Mountain website.
