Sustainable in Saskatchewan

The residents of Craik, SK, are all about the environment and they’ve proven it with the Sustainable Living Project. At the heart of the project is an eco-centre, which houses a restaurant, meeting rooms and a clubhouse for the environmentally-friendly golf course. The frame was built using timber from old grain elevators, the walls are made of plaster-covered straw and the water in the restaurant is treated rainwater collected from the roof. About half of the building’s heat is solar; the other half comes from geothermal pipes and a masonry oven built with bricks from an old schoolhouse. Tours of the community, seminars and workshops are offered regularly, and work has begun on an energy-efficient housing development. (306) 734-2250. www.craikecovillage.ca/.
