Well kids here’s how it is… We have a 650 acre sustainable community that we fought hard for ten years to establish. The reason we had to fight was that we wanted no infrastructure or conventional utilities to be in this community. We wanted it green, sustainable, autonomous, and free. That upset everyone in authority so we were in for it. We kept fighting and finally got it.
We have maybe the only 650 acre development on the planet that is allowed to have no infrastructure or utilities. We sold this idea because the Earthship building does everything for itself.
