Taller E.V.E. – Colombia Mayo 2017

Taller Earthship Village Ecologies – 15 Mayo – 09 Junio 2017, Capurgana, Colombia
El objetivo de este taller Earthship es enseñarle a quien quiera participar a construir una casa auto-sostenible, ademas de tener la experiencia de desarrollar un estilo de vida nuevo y auto-suficiente en nuestro planeta Tierra. Cambiar su vida para mejor nunca ha sido tan fácil, ya que Earthship Biotecture ahora contará con un nuevo campus donde poder aprender a construir hogares auto-suficientes en sólo cuatro semanas. Desde el 15 de Mayo al 09 de Junio 2017, Michael Reynolds y su equipo especializado impartirán el primer taller en este nuevo campus, donde podrá disfrutar de alguna de la mejor formación en arquitectura verde del mundo.
Earthship Biotecture ha obtenido el alquiler de dos hectáreas en la playa caribeña de Colombia para construir el primer campus de vida autosostenible tipo EVE (Earthship Village Ecologies) que a la vez funcionará como centro periférico para la Academia Earthship, y que estará abierto a personas de todo el mundo interesadas en participar y desarrollar tecnologías para la vida autosostenible. En este campus se estudiarán todas las tecnologías Earthship, además de filosofía y la dirección política para el futuro.
No ha habido momento en la historia de la humanidad en el que esto fuera más necesario que AHORA.
El proyecto comenzará con la construcción de la primera casa Earthship de un conjunto de 30 unidades tropicales sostenibles que planeamos construir en total. Este primer Earthship se contruirá en un taller entre el 15 de Mayo y el 09 de Junio 2017. Estamos invitando a un total de 60 personas a que participen en esta primera construcción y aprendan cómo construir el nuevo diseño de “Earthship tropical en pendiente”, inspirado en la comunidad REACH en Taos, Nuevo Méjico.
Michael Reynolds dirigirá este taller junto a su equipo especializado que guiará a los participantes y les enseñará a construir Earthships, incluyendo los seis principios básicos que los identifican:
1 Acondicionamiento del hogar (temperatura) usando principios de masa térmica, eliminando costes convencionales de luz y agua
2 Uso de energía eólica y fotovoltaica
3 Recolección, almacenaje y filtración de agua de lluvia para su uso y agua potable
4 Tratamiento de aguas fecales sin contaminación externa
5 Producción de comida en invernadero integrado
6 Uso de materiales reciclados (basura) para su construcción
Los participantes aprenderán que construir una casa sostenible puede ser fácil y asequible. El taller será impartido por algunos de nuestros mejores profesores y nosotros proporcionaremos las herramientas necesarias para la construcción. Habrá mucha experiencia práctica en la que los participantes podrán aprender tanto técnicas de construcción tradicionales (mezclar cemento, carpentería básica etc) como también técnicas específicas tipo Earthship (paredes de neumáticos y de botellas, jardineras botánicas etc).
El equipo Earthship trabajará durante 8 horas diarias de Lunes a Sábado (estos horarios y los sábados son opcionales para participantes), y además proporcionaremos algunas clases teóricas y sesiones de Preguntas y Respuestas con nuestros instructores.
Finalmente, también habrá tiempo para cantar, bucear y divertirse, y la oportunidad de tomarse unos días para visitar y descubrir la belleza de la zona.
El taller Earthship en Colombia se sitúa en tierras privadas en una playa cercana a Capurgana, en el municipio de Acandi, Colombia. Sólo se puede acceder por vía de mar.
Cuota de participación:
USD $1,500 para personas con pasaporte latinoamericano.
USD $2,000 para todos los demás.
Plazas limitadas.
Alojamiento: camping en área de césped con baños secos.
Almuerzo y cena incluidos en el precio.
Tenemos a su disposición un paquete informativo.

E.V.E. Workshop – Colombia May 2017

Earthship Village Ecologies Workshop – 15 May – 09 June 2017, Capurgana, Colombia

Para Español, haga click aquí
This workshop aims to teach ANYONE willing to learn how to build a self sufficient house and experience a new kind of human settlement on Earth.
Living a life changing experience has never been so easy with EARTHSHIP BIOTECTURE, as the company can now welcome you on a new training site to teach you how to build an Earthship in just 4 weeks: From May 15th to June 9th 2017 Michael Reynolds and his crew will be able to offer one of the best trainings in green architecture in the World.
Earthship Biotecture has gained access to five acres of land on a beautiful remote beach in Caribbean Colombia. The plan is to build an Earthship Village Ecologies (EVE) sustainable living Campus which will also function as an Earthship Academy Satellite campus, that will be available for people from all over the world to participate in the development of sustainable technologies applicable to the entire planet. The studies available on this campus will include all Earthship technologies, philosophy, and political directions for the future.
If there ever was a time when this is needed it is NOW.
This project will start with the construction of one of about thirty tropical sustainable housing units during a workshop in May. Between May 15 and June 9 2017, we will be inviting 60 people to help and learn how to build the latest “Earthship steep slope tropical living unit”, inspired by the REACH community in Taos, New Mexico, with all the latest in Earthship systems and thinking.
Michael Reynolds is leading the build, and his experienced crew will take you under their wings to show you how to build Earthships including the 6 basic Earthship principles:
1 Heat and cool themselves naturally via solar/thermal dynamics
2 Collect their own power from the sun/wind
3 Harvest their own water from rain and snow
4 Contain and treat their own sewage on site
5 Produce a significant amount of food
6 Are constructed using the byproducts of modern society like cans, bottles and tires.
You will learn that building a house is accessible. We picked our best instructors and tools are provided. You will have a lot of hands on work and learn traditional building techniques such as mixing concrete, plastering, carpentry but also specific Earthship features like recycling, how to make a tyre wall, a glass bottle wall, botanical cells and more…
The crew will work 8hours per day from Monday to Saturday (however, Saturday is optional for participants and you don’t have to follow our time schedules either), but we will make sure you also have good theoretical learning as we are offering numerous Q&A sessions where you will be able to get answers to all the questions you may have directly from Earthship Crew.
Finally, we will have time to sing, snorkel, and party together and you can also take few days off to get the opportunity to discover Colombia’s beauty.
