“A great educational opportunity. Certainly a once in a lifetime chance
to come away with skills that can send you in a new direction for a career,
and ability to build an Earthship of your own going forward.”
What are we doing?
We are working on an incomplete owner-built Earthship, finishing the structural shell and systems (not power, yet). This project may extend to become a Sustainable Building School and Permaculture Institute.
– Full week $400: Monday thru Friday, 9am to 5pm, with a break for lunch.
This includes hands-on experience, instruction, education, and building. Plus, this also includes a full copy of our ‘Whole Earth’ book, a 700+ pages curriculumtextbook that illustrates in details the various parts of sustainable building construction methods; from electricalsystems to catch water systems, to food production, and so much more.
– Per Day $30: Monday thru Friday, 9am to 5pm, with a break for lunch.
This includes hands-on experience, instruction, education, and building. If you sign up for 5 days or more, you get digital copy of ‘Heating & Cooling Building’ – 242 pages, one of the chapters of our 700+ pages ‘Whole Earth’ curriculumtextbook.
-Free Volunteer Saturdays, 10am-2pm: This is more of a general volunteer day, touring the building, Q & A, and lightly helping out around the property, no specific hands-on instructions or construction.
Please RSVP your volunteer days…

The overall goal is to serve the community with sustainable living systems: food production, solar and wind electricity, clean water, liquid waste treatment and self-empowerment to thrive independently.
We envision colleges and universities such as Eckerd College, USF St. Pete, SPC and New College can use the Earthship and this property as a living laboratory to experiment and innovate with sustainability technologies and methods. This demonstration and example serves to show how easy and simple sustainable living is, NOW.
