". . . the Earthship is the epitome of sustainable design and construction. No part of sustainable living has been ignored in this ingenious building."
To specifically design and build homes that ...
To evolve the way humans live on this planet by evolving existing methods of living, home by home.
To make small, believable steps toward slowing down and ultimately reversing the negative impact of human development as it relates to the Earth’s ability to continue to support life.
To present these steps in a way that affords easy understanding and inspires people to act.
To empower people to make positive changes in their own lives to reduce their personal carbon footprint.
"If all the soldiers in all the armies in all the world put down their weapons and picked up tools and started building sustainable, carbon zero housing for all the people of the world our problems would be over and real life for all people would begin."

Australia’s first Earthship – Finishes Workshop
We are very excited to announce the finishes workshop for Australias first Earthship in Queensland, Australia. The Earthship design concept and systems have been applied to the subtropical climate of the area. Come and see the rammed earth tyres, the can walls, the earth berm, the hempcrete roof and all other components of this Earthship.
The Earthship was started in January this year. We ran a 3 week construction workshop on our residential permaculture plot. Our Earthship Finishes Workshop gives detailed attention to bottle walls, botanical cells and many more creative applications for the flooring, walls and the bathroom fit out.
Greetings Tasmanian Earthship and sustainable building supporters!
After much waiting there's finally an Earthship event coming up for Tassie
Come along if you've heard about Earthships and want to find out more or would like to sign up and join the movement starting across Australia to bring this radical sustainble architecture and living model to us here!
Academy graduate Duuvy Jester, with a crew of dedicated humans have successfully brought Australia's first Earthship to waterproof and lock up stage! So now Duuvy is travelling down the east coast of Australia to share the experience through a bunch of engaging, entertaining and informative talks.
Learn all about Earthships and their application to the diverse Australian environment. Hear all about the journey of the first Earthship downunder. The workshop, the alterations in design, the usage of hempcrete, the cyclonic weather, the challenges, the realities involved in undertaking this kind of project are just some of the areas of discussion that will be covered.
Good evening friends,
We sure have been busy since we spoke last. Five solid days were lost amongst a school of childish weather. The kind of weather that would make stormy Melbourne city blush like a dungeons and dragons enthusiast on his first date. Entire towns were flooded, houses destroyed and they even had to shoot livestock out from the treetops they were trapped in. That is how seriously violent the rain fell.
How did the Earthship hold up, did I hear you ask? Well…
We are rained in and it looks like we will be for some time. This small coastal town has turned biblically torrential with a soviet sky. They have promised a stage three cyclone but we will most likely receive a left-over lover in the shape of high winds. Sloppy seconds. Very interesting. I watch the crowd here, embraced in the kind of unity that cant be shaken by a little sky disco. They laugh and talk and play music as though it is mid-afternoon at Burning Man, and as the rain bellows down onto the tarp covering our camp kitchen, we know that our intent and solidarity will pull us through to the other side of this Earthly bedlam.
the builds been going incredibly. the weird questions i got people to ask in hope of them aligning intention, actually worked!! the vibrations here have been really high. the photos here are of work completed after 3 days. we even have the grey water and black water cells in. at this rate we are well on schedule to finish in 2 and a half weeks from now. yesterday people were pounding until 7 at night. we have been taking 3 and a half hour breaks everyday to swim at the beach. the communal lunches have been fun. the seminar went well at the beginning. some people were in tears. and those tears were of inspiration and joy!
I have written an article for ReNew magazine regarding my research on Earthship thermal performance and lifecycle assessment. There is a companion piece to the article which you can read for free here http://renew.org.au/earthships/
