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.
