Australia Workshop

Earthship Australia invites you to a hands-on and informative weekend of workshops and seminars on sustainable design principles.

By the end of the weekend you will be equipped with practical experience, and a broad understanding of the challenges and processes for building and renovating alternative natural building designs in South-East Australia.

Hear from natural building experts, architects, planners, engineers, building designers and tradespeople. Then learn how to build a reciprocal roof and tyre retaining wall sculpture. By the end of the weekend, you’ll be moving bush and going off grid! Maybe not quite – but almost. Read More

We’re in it together

BUILDING a house is a big job.

With this in mind, Nimbin-based company Terraeden Biotecture has come up with a solution to make building a home easier – get as many people as possible to help.

The company’s unique attitude toward building sees participants physically build an “Earthship” home through community workshops.

Over the course of the build, participants learn practical skills and theory about things such as permaculture and law.

Terraeden design facilitator Duuvy Jester said he could come up with a design for any home based on a client’s budget.

“Not everyone can afford the labour costs, so the people who are coming to do the build get a reasonably priced education that gives them real skills and the people building the house get their labour cost cut out,” Mr Jester said. Read More
