Going Green Workshop Series with the Grand House

There is a great series of sustainable building workshops happening this spring at the new Grand House, a strawbale student co-operative in Cambridge. Greg is taking part in various workshops - radiant flooring, claystraw and wattle & daub, and waste water treatment & living machines (all projects we hope to be incorporating in our new strawbale addition, so these workshops are very timely for us!) - and we'll both be there on April 19th, to lead the "urban agriculture" workshop. Here's the full schedule:

Going Green Workshop Series with the Grand House
A sustainable building and lecture series:
