To me, straw bale construction is the gateway green building technique. It helps bridge the gap between the norm and other alternative methods. As far as the claims that it has great insulation properties and at the same time abosrbs heat during the day to warm the house at night, that seems to be a contradiction. Gateway green construction (SB) has received some press in my area as well. A few high profile buildings have utilized this technique. Hopefully SB leads to WOFATI.

Second I was looking to raise the AGH pair with a Nigerian Dwarf goat and a Alpine goat on a single acre pasture. I have water from a well and perimeter fencing of no climb horse fence but was wondering what the best fence option was for the rotational Paddocks. I was looking at eclectic netting from Premier 1. Anyone have any experience with them? which netting configuration did you use. Should I get the poutry netting with smaller holes or the goat netting with closer spaced posts and bigger holes. Or would T posts with different height Electric lines be better? There are a ton of options.



I may have a breeding pair for you. I sent you a message with contact info.

Water movement can supply the required oxygen. Most AP systems use a constant flow of water to keep a constant flow of oxygen and nutrients pumping throughout the system. IMO, the rope pump will need to be used more than one person will want to power it. Maybe get your friends to pump it. I think that a pond with a low stocking density of fish and a floating raft for the plants is the way to go without electricity.
