Desert Solitaire | Community As Sacred Geometry

The expectations I brought with me to Earthship Biotecture were that I would walk away with experiences, skills, new friends, and knew that I would have no idea as to how this journey would affect my life. My goal was to set out to do the best I could, and to see what nourishes me.

Bomber, bro!

Well… week 3 is in the books.  It was a very productive week for the Academy.  On top of the construction work we accomplished this week, we also had our first set of labs.  In the labs, we got to build the WOM (water organizing module) and POM (power organizing module) from scratch with the help of Earthship crew specialists guiding us along the way.

Academy week 3 Valves

My first blog post is starting a little late.  I’ll do my best to catch you guys up to date.  It’s week 3 and we’ve already progressed a ton in terms of classroom education, our build in the Greater World Community (they call it GDub), and the friendships within the Academy and crew.  Heeeerewego!  

I gotta say it was a tough day (Ice Cube style). We had class in the morning and construction work in the afternoon.  It got a lil’ toasty out on the mesa.

Earthship Academy: Dinner by Candlelight

Went to the Academy last night to pick up stuff for the seminar.
Ended up eating dinner with everyone. Took a couple pix but want to go back some evening with my bigger camera at sunset. The students are an amazing group of people. We ate a homemade vegetarian meal by candlelight. They have the big candelabra and candle chandelier going.
It was beautiful…we talked and laughed and I felt so lucky to be with them.

What can you do as a Graduate of the Earthship Academy? … It is up to you!

One common question we hear while considering to attend the new Earthship Academy is ‘How will one apply their Earthship Academy Certification after it has been earned?’ This question stems from the curiosity of how the Earthship technology will bridge with the old system. That question doesn’t have an answer yet, but we are excited to see the transition.
