Saturday May 8th found Dignity Village kicking off the construction of 10 new light-straw-clay structures at the Village. Five of the new dwelling spaces will be constructed during the Village Building Convergence 4 (May 21-30, see http://www.cityrepair.org). The structures are framed with salvaged recycled building materials and feature natural light straw clay insulation, as well as passive solar features and rooftop rainwater harvesting.
Come on down to the Village this Sunday (May 16th) 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or during the VBC4 to lend a hand or simply observe this unique construction technique.
Also, please consider donating some material. To complete the project the Village needs many 2x4s, 2x6s and 2x8s plus sheets of plywood, nails, wood screws and tools such as electric drills, saws and hammers.
See you at the Village! Viva Dignity!
