Dear Rikki,
yes I agree, spring or autumn are the best times for conferences. Just 
thisyear we choose the ecovillage of Siebenlinden for the ESBG, and 
there was only the option for August, I am sorry ,that it was not 
suitable for everybody.
Please can you give a web site adress of the straw bale pavillion in 
Zaragosa. Do you know when it is going to be built?
As for the next ESBGs I am sure we find good solutions and places for 
the years to come. Anyway it seems to have a lot of approval to take 
place more frequently in the future and I am happy that we get more 
international contacts. Thanks again for all people who believe in this 
movementand who came to meet. It is a gerat support for this work.
Best wishes
