What to expect
The weekend begins with dinner and a slide show and discussion of the concepts and history of Earthships. The following day begins with a morning lecture; the afternoon is devoted to on-site tire pounding, mudding, and building can walls. Sunday is split between additional lectures and touring a variety of completed Earthships in The Greater World Community, including the Phoenix.

October 17, 2011 - "My husband and i just completed this month's seminar. It was fantastic. We are so excited about the "simple survival" model, we can't wait to hear about the next adaptation in Guatemala. We look forward to buying the plans as soon as they are available."



The lecture series includes explanation and demonstration of the systems packages, and addressing individual participant's questions. Reviewing the Earthship books and videos prior to the seminar will help you get the most out of this experience.


What to bring
For Saturday's hands-on session bring clothes that you don't mind destroying, sturdy closed-toed shoes, sunscreen, drinking water and a sack lunch. You will need a pair of rubber gloves and a pair of leather work gloves.
