NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Posted on behalf of Jim Kavanaugh:
We are looking for one or two people in the Durango area with experience in straw bale construction and natural plaster, interested in summer and fall work. We have a piece of land below Lemon Reservoir along the Florida River, 25 minutes outside of Durango.
COSBA will officially be changing its name to the Natural Building Alliance. Our mission, vision, and goals will remain much the same – just in an expanded format. In addition to straw bales, we’ll be honoring and advocating for ALL genres of natural building materials and methods: adobe, cob, hempcrete, timber, you name it.
Well COSBA had a very busy September, which included hosting a bale stacking workshop, attending the Higher Ground Fair in Laramie, and having a strawbale home featured in the Boulder Green Home Tour, hosted by the Colorado Green Building Guild. Check out their site and Facebook page for into and pics.
