EUGENE, ORE- The latest in green innovation involves straw bales as insulation for homes and commercial buildings.

There's a weekend-long event starting Friday in Lane County to teach you how to use straw bale insulation instead of the typical fiberglass insulation or spray foam insulation.

The workshop will be a hands-on experience in many aspects of straw bale construction, from bale raising to earth plastering.

Participants must be at least 16 years old. Registration is limited, so act fast.

For more information about the event, and to register, please visit their website.
