Dear Friends,

Global weather events of 2017 clearly indicated the trajectory for climate intensification, and subsequent disaster recovery efforts.

This is the new normal.

Our belief in this is as extreme as the fires, hurricanes, and droughts themselves.

As people less affected, it will become a responsibility to balance what has become an uphill struggle to maintain homeostasis within affected communities.

This coming year, we intend to educate ourselves about tools of radically sustainable architecture.

These particular tools, developed by master architect Michael Reynolds, claim to give people anywhere on the planet the autonomous ability to build and rebuild.
These structures, called Earthships, are completely self-sustaining.


Passive solar can provide heat at all times of year.
Greywater filtration can get 3x the use out of water harvested from natural rainfall.

We will update twitter and facebook with this year’s project. In the meantime, learn about earthship technology here.
