Former Intern Jessa Turner featured in the Kentucky Herald-Leader


One of Yestermorrow's former interns is making big waves down in Berea, Kentucky where she established HomeGrown HideAways, found online at http://www.homegrownhideaways.org/, a year ago to teach others eco-friendly construction techniques. Jessa Turner (a summer 2006 intern from Berea College) is featured on the front page of today's Kentucky Herald-Leader (http://www.kentucky.com/254/story/454203.html) profiling her work creating small homes using natural materials like earthbags, cob and straw bales. The article also features their truck, which has been converted to run on waste vegetable oil that they collect from local restaurants.
