Earthship Queensland Update – July 2013

Greetings Earthship supporters,
Well we have just returned from a successful 2 week workshop to get more done on final finishing of the 2 U survival pod in on the discovery coast in Queensland, Australia.

The project was run as a volunteer participation workshop, similar to the projects run in many countries overseas by Earthship Biotecture, which involved a workshop program which provided aseries of talks, films and discussions surrounding living self-sufficiently and engaging with the broader themes of Earthship Biotecture including a smaller-scale living mindset, community development and inclusion and thinking smarter in terms of resource consumption and use of materials.  Earthship living is not simply a dwelling but involves a series of processes which include shared learning experiences and spreading knowledge for others to learn and teach the methodology and the philosophy behind Biotecture to foster the establishment of more Earthships across the country.   Bob and Shelley were clear that they desired to create a home and an experience based on a loving intention and opened their lives and property to all to share in their way of life.
