Earthships Could Transform Philadelphia

from the Sierra Club
More than 40,000 vacant lots, many piled high with illegally dumped tires, blight the city of Philadelphia. High unemployment and crime rates discourage many residents, but not Rashida Ali-Campbell, director of the non-profit, LoveLovingLove, Inc.
In Philadelphia’s empty lots and abandoned, decaying buildings (approximately 75,000), Ali-Campbell sees hope and unlimited possibilities. Her mission is to open a school for low-income residents to learn sustainable building techniques. She plans to bring the first urban Earthship to Philadelphia.

Earthship Academy Sept/Oct 2011 – Part 2

Earthship Biotecture Academy, 2011 – Part 2 –
 
When you look at the course structure of the Biotecture Academy, it’s hard to image how they’re meant to cover all the formal learning and practical application aspects of Biotecture in such a short time. 
When I left Australia I had very few expectations of the first academy other than wanting to engage with the organisation; find out who the crew was, learn from them, watch them at work, hear stories about what works what doesn’t, see the Greater World for myself, get up to R.E.A.C.H and mostly see how capable I was at learning from scratch many skills necessary for building my own home one day and helping others fulfil their dream too.
If I look back on the formal and practical learning modules of the academy I’m quite amazed at what we covered.  Aside from a classroom based approach to learning the basic philosophies, budgeting and planning, systems, materials lists, global applications, architectural history, and how to go out and embark upon projects of our own, we were given access to a range of jobs and skills I’d never been able to try out before.
