A Native American Affordable Housing Workshop is planned for September 3 - 
4, 2005 in Crestone, Colorado in collaboration with Brave Heart 
Construction, Owen Geiger and Builders Without Borders. Workshop 
participants will build a straw bale emergency shelter and then learn how 
to modify it to create a permanent straw bale home for use in Native 
American communities.

The cost of the workshop is $200 and includes simple lunches (soup, 
sandwiches, chips, fruit and beverages). Local restaurants are available 
for breakfasts and dinners. Workshop hours are from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

The workshop is open to the general public, however, preference will be 
given to Native Americans, especially those who plan on using this 
information to help others. Non-natives will be put on a waiting list until 
6 weeks before the workshop.

Free camping is available in the national forest and lodging in nearby motels.

The straw bale shelter built during the workshop will be based on the Free 
Straw Bale Emergency Shelter Plans on the Geiger Research Institute of 
Sustainable Building webpage.

Please register as soon as possible, as we expect the workshop to fill 
quickly. This workshop does require a $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve 
your space.
