We have made some great progress on the Community Building, and there is still plenty of opportunity for getting involved, old hands and new, everyone is welcome. Remember this is your project as much as ours. If you have the time to help, keep an eye out for the dates so check your inbox. Also there are regular updates on our progress on our Facebook page.
It' s starting to come together!
Thank you ever so much to everyone who has contributed to the project so far. It has been really satisfying to see it happening, and to see so many people coming together.
In the last week of May 2016 we ran a workshop on building with straw. During the week-long course participants learned to build with straw bales, to apply a lime rendering, and made a start on a reciprocal roof.
Following the workshop week we undertook another volunteer work day, and despite some wet weather it proved to be another rewarding experience. There is still lots of work to be done, not least finishing the roof. We will be running a series of volunteer days to help get the job done.
