Straw bale building is an ancient technique of creating dwellings from straw as a structural element. The current goal of this Natural Building technique is to be green, to be sustainable.

City Repair is supporting a home owner building with straw bale in the Darlington neighborhood. During this work party everyone is welcome to come and help build!

No experience is necessary. The goal of this workparty is to give us opportunity to learn and gain experience with this natural building technique. Crew leaders on site will direct and teach about the process.

Please dress for the weather! Additionally, wear closed toe shoes, and consider pants and long sleeves. A vegetarian Mexican lunch will be provided. Special treats for folks that carpool!
