Buy A Bale A Month Club
As reported in our e-mail message of October 12, member Vic
Bedoian has organized a Buy A Bale A Month Club. Each club member
pledges to donate to SunMt $5 a month to buy, truck and store
a bale of straw for Baby SunHouse, SunMt's demonstration passive
solar straw bale-adobe dwelling. Purpose to develop engineering
data so that straw bale construction can become a part of the
regular building code. The club will live until the project is
fully financed. You can join by sending in your first $5.
This chronicle is transformed most every Monday.
