Straw-bale building - magazines

The Last Straw

TLS is the only journal published to record the revival and development of strawbale worldwide. Those who subscribe to this quarterly journal become part of the international strawbale community, supporting the revival of bale building and its emerging presence around the world. Members of the straw-bale community are the major contributors to our publication—as authors of articles; contributors of information about techniques, methods, materials and projects; sources of construction details, testing and research; and columnists with knowledge and experience. They also help us keep people informed about workshops, hands-on training, tours and conferences on strawbale and natural building.



GBEzine is the latest incarnation of Green Building magazine that we first published in 1989. It is compiled by and for green building professionals and enthusiasts: architects, builders, developers and householders alike. It’s purpose is to share information and encourage the increased use of more sensitive, caring and ‘planet-friendly’ techniques of building.


There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
