Catherine Wanek, co-director of Builders Without Borders, was recently busy in our national capitol featuring the organization’s straw bale house which was on display at the National Botanic Gardens. It is worthwhile visiting the BWB website:
FROM BUILDERS WITHOUT BORDERS:
Builders Without Borders
is an international network of ecological builders who advocate the use of straw, earth and other local, affordable materials in construction. We believe that the solution to homelessness is not merely housing, but individuals and communities trained to house themselves.
When Catherine returns from her project in Washington D.C., Green Streets will conduct an interview with her. She has many good things to share.
Educational Resources Fund
Builders Without Borders created a Strawbale Construction Curriculum, and donates this training manual, plus other books and videos, to worthy people and projects, and offers scholarships to BWB workshops for dedicated students.
