My alma mater may not have an organic student farm…yet, but I’m thrilled to find out that it is starting research on green building. SDSU will soon have a straw bale house. Progress! The SDSU Collegian reported a couple weeks ago on the construction to be completed this summer. McCrory Gardens will be home to the straw bale building, which will also have a living roof. Read all about it here.
Construction of the building will be the result of an SDSU class this summer. I won’t be able to take the class, but I’d love to hear from someone who does. At the very least, I’ll snap some photos and post them here later.
Sidenote: Ever the stickler for grammar and spelling, I noticed the glaring word usage error at the beginning of the Collegian article (editions/additions). Journalism students, spelling does matter!
