resistance of straw. ...

Good work, Dirk (and all the other volunteer contributors to this
important testing effort!)

Also, the August conference at  Sieben Linden, an ecovillage, should
be a valuable gathering.

GSBNers -- I highly recommend a visit to Germany to see some of their
well-designed & crafted straw-bale buildings, including the amazing
"Stropolis" at Sieben Linden, a three-story, 5000sf, strawbale
"apartment building" for perhaps 20(?) ecovillage residents.  Built
to commercial code, with timber structure, earth plasters inside and
out, photovoltaics, etc.... designed by Dirk Scharmer.

warm greetings,
Catherine Wanek
