The Chicago Natural Building Meetup Group Message Board › The Chicago Natural Building Meetup Group Discussion Forum › buying straw in Chicago and an update
|A former member||
Hi everyone -
I sent a message to the group a few months ago about a garden project I was starting that I wanted to incorporate natural building into. It is in the Woodlawn neighborhood across from the South Side Freedom School. I got lots of responses and some great ideas and encouragement.
First of all, I want to thank all of you who responded. Second, I want to let you know that we are finally starting our first natural building project there! I will send a link to photos as we get underway.
Third, I need some more help. Can anyone suggest a place in Chicago where I can get a small amount of straw for our project? We're starting pretty simple - just enough bricks to build a bench and/or small wall.
Thanks in advance for your help!
