We are a non-profit organization whose members are designers,contractors, owner builders, and people interested in straw and natural building. We serve as a clearing house for information and as a network of resources.
Since 1996, our members have worked to develop testing and to improve techniques and standards for building with straw, in order to gain its acceptance by municipalities, officials, lenders, and insurance companies throughout California, and beyond. There are now many fine examples of permitted straw bale homes throughout the state, as well as a number of commercial buildings, which stand as a testament to this pioneering work.
