We are looking forward to work with Leeds Community House and learn from their experience on using straw bale as well as organisational and community development skills. We are delighted we can call on people like Paul Chatterton of Lilac who is also part of LCH and is an expert on MHOS (Mutual Home Ownership)… plus we have an opportunity to cooperate with environmental architect (a member of LCH) who might be able to put in some help.
