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.
We are an active group of volunteers based out of Seattle, WA.
Our mission is to promote and develop Earth friendly and people friendly community living concepts in the great North West.

Beginning in early March, the Spring Academy students worked with the staff to begin a new one bedroom global model in the Greater World Community. The first weeks started with laying out tires and continuing to pound the 9 courses of tires.

As the weeks advanced, the structure started to look more like a home, with the framing and the vigas being put up to support the roof.
Christchurch has been through a hard time, do doubt. Its been over 2 years since the worst quake, which threw the city into chaos and its residents into turmoil.
Its now March 2013 and a lot of the roads are still terrible, the whole central city is still closed down, there are blocks that used to be hubs that are gravel car parks and thousands of houses are red stickered and stand empty.
Mike Reynolds took an interest in the Christchurch situation and came to visit us in NZ for 6 days in mid March. Mike spoke at 3 public seminars to Christchurch residents, as well as meeting with the Christchurch City Council, doing a talk to architecture students, a retrofit talk at a farm homestead and 2 media interviews. Mike also lead the 3 day practical workshop with 35 participants of an Earthship build on the Hills above Christchurch. Here is what happened.
This October, Earthship Biotecture will be joined by a team of student soldiers to build an Earthship flower design community center in Malawi, Africa. We are working together with a local NGO, Empower Malawi, to gather people and funds to spread the word and build two rooms (petals) over the course of ten days. The dates of this project are October 7th-16th, 2013.
The project, Kapita Earthship Community Centre, is to become a sustainable development epicenter for 38 villages and over 5,000 rural people in South East Mzimba district in Malawi. The Kapita Earthship Community Centre is to house a community bank, a mini library, a dispensary, offices and a food bank.

Imagine a home that: heats and cools itself; provides its own food and water; generates its own power; handles its own sanitation; works in harmony with the intelligence of the earth and is made predominantly from recycled materials. This home is called an Earthship, and its technology —which goes beyond merely “green” to actually generative — has been refined through 40 years' hands-on experience worldwide.
