Hey, want to see a straw bale house? Want to learn about building one? Or would you be interested in some other practical ways you can save energy and money?
Then come to the Straw Bale House at McCrory Gardens in Brookings this Saturday, August 14, for an education fair and workshops on energy efficiency and renewable energy. I'm on a Dakota Rural Action committee that is helping stage the event, so I'm happy to invite you all to come learn how we South Dakotans can rely on our own resourcefulness to save energy and even make some of our own.
Among the speakers is Madison's own Don Amert, who will talk about what he's learned as he has researched building his own wind turbines. Come listen to our speakers, come check out the informational booths, come ask questions... and come get free ice cream!
The DRA press release has some more details (complete with sparkling quotes from me and fellow DRA member Donna Hess). The event runs from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Current forecast for Saturday: partly cloudy an 79°F. Lovely day to stroll in the park and fill your head with good energy ideas! See you Saturday!
