2017 Strawbale Studio Year-in-Review !

STRAWBALE STUDIO 2017 REPORT: Internships, Activities, Reskilling & Projects. Gifts & Donars The focus for 2017 was getting ready for the Strawbale Studio 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION! 20 Years ago Fran Lee wanted a structure, and I wanted to build. Many, many hands accomplished that goal. .This process resulted in lots of completion on both the buildings and surrounding environments ! Many skills learned and practiced, and friendships made as intern, volunteer & workshop folks co-created ! This list contains many, but not all the the projects and happenings during 2017. Such richness ! I will continue to add to it, a work in process.
2017 Activities include:
Monthly Potlucks Hosted FULL MOON POTLUCK, Bonfire & Tour 10-15 folks/tour 30-50 folks/Potluck
Monthly Meetups Attended Oakland Co. Permaculture Meetup 30-40 folks
