FIC's New Green OfficeFIC’s New Green Office Headquarters!

Sustainability occurs when nature, culture, and technology are in cooperation.

FIC has a deep commitment to raising environmental awareness and engaging in green practices, so is psyched to announce our new highly ecological office!

Natural Materials

This natural building uniquely features load-bearing straw bale construction and earthen plaster. It is made of all natural, local, and recycled materials, and is very energy and temperature efficient.

Electricity from solar panels!

Clean solar energy provides power to the office, and a wood stove heats this cozy 350 square foot building.

The name of the building is Allium, and it is actually the oldest natural building located at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. DR is known for being exemplars of sustainability and creativity in community. Read their 6 Ecological Covenants here!

Not only is this a perfect new home for FIC from an ecological and cultural standpoint, we are also thrilled to be moving out of a 70’s era trailer that was dilapidated and long past retirement. 🙂

To make it easier to move the Community Bookstore over to the eco-office, plus to offer some fun things that we found while cleaning out the trailer, how about a big spring cleaning yard sale?
