WORKSHOP

SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO
(EAST OF DANFORTH, SOUTH OFF EGLINTON)

Plastered straw bale homes were first built in North America about  100
years ago. Many of those original structures are still in use today. We are
seeing a renaissance of this simple, environmentally sound technique which
has empowered many people to construct their own  energy efficient and
affordable homes.

We are pleased to offer the public a two day hands-on workshop where
participants will learn by building and plastering a mockup of a straw
bale house. Training will include: history and best practices for ecological
design, strawbuild techniques for foundations, walls and roofs,and system
integration.

The weekend course will be taught by a team of ecologically aware
builders and architects lead by:
        Linda Chapman, master architect and permaculture expert
        with a support team of:
        Tom Ponessa, architect, builder and lecturer
        Glenn McKnight, Ecologist, builder and raconteur
        Dave Cameron, master tradesman.
Our location is easily accessible by highway and public transit.

Fee:            $250 plus GST (meals included)
