International Straw Builders’ Conference – Fund Raising!

The 2012 International Straw Builders’ Conference runs from September 16 – 22, 2012
At the YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park, Colorado USA.

The mission of the 2012 ISBC is to foster the development, improvement, education and positive impacts of straw building and related sustainable building approaches. The international nature of the conference supports the critical exchange of valuable and diverse viewpoints and experiences and enhances the opportunities for networking. And we intend to have a lot of fun.

The list of experts speaking on straw and natural building is really exciting….

We want to go!

We are not a rich bunch, most of us can just about afford to sustain ourselves while we are on this course.
To raise the funds for the tickets to the conference will be holding some fun draising events.
