"Natural Building helps us connect again to our local natural environment, to our own intuitive and innate creativity, and to each other. It helps us to shift from an industrial, and often toxic building process to one that is affordable, empowering, community-building and life-affirming."

The Strawbale Studio Natural Building Educational Program is being sponsored by SEEDS, a non-profit which supports environmental and ecological design solutions. www.ecoseeds.org
