You are invited to tour the nuns' housing at the Deer Park Buddhist Monastery in Escondido to see for yourself how beautiful and effective straw bale building can be. The four straw bale buildings encircle a central courtyard and will house 45 nuns and their world-renowned teacher, Thich Nhat Hahn, when he visits. Designed by CASBA member Drew Hubbell of Hubbell & Hubbell, and built with the help of CASBA members Simple Construct, the Monastery is one of a number of sustainable homes featured as part of the Green Homes Tour. See the Green Home Tour for more information.
CASBA is fiscally sponsored by the Tides Center, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.
