STRAW BALE CONSTRUCTION WORKSHOP SATURDAY & SUNDAY MAY 27/28, 1995 80 BARBADOS UNIT 1 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.
