Annual Ontario Natural Building Conference & AGM  - April 4 and 5, 2020

We invite you to join us for two days of Natural Building presentations and learning on April 4 and 5, 2020, at our annual Natural Building Conference. Like previous years, there will be a variety of workshops, round table discussions, and presentations on a variety of topics of interest to builders and potential owner-builders.


This conference is a great opportunity to connect with others in the natural building and straw bale community who we don't often get the chance to meet up with. Tasty libations  and a music jam on Saturday evening will give everyone time to mix and mingle both personally and professionally!


The Ontario Natural Building Coalitions’ Annual General Meeting of members will take place at 1:30pm on Saturday April 4th, followed by further educational and social events. 


Accommodation is available from Friday night (Friday night check-ins from 5 - 9pm) through to Sunday, and super delicious and healthy meals are included. (Most food sensitivities can be accommodated)


Accommodation is rustic "Indoor Camping Style" in cabins of 6 or more people. Bedding and towels are not provided. Washroom and shower facilities are available, in a central washroom building. You must bring your own sleeping bag, pillow and/or bedding, towels etc. A flashlight is a good idea too.
