Earthships for Beginners: A DIY Sustainable House Project
Presentation and discussion with Sandra Burkholder & Chris Newton, who are starting to build an Earthship home in Darfield, BC. In their blog (http://earthship.darfield.com), Sandra writes:
Several weeks ago I started digging for a contact at the Kamloops Energy Fair, being held this year on May 23 at McArthur Island Park. After only a few calls I connected with Cheryl Kabloona, with the Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association...
The contact led to a request by the association for Chris and me to attend its chapter meeting on February 23rd at TRU University to speak about our project.
Because we find the more we talk about our plans, the more we learn, we cleared the evening with the kids' grandparents, and have committed to participating in the meeting.
We will bring along our house plans, in whatever state they happen to be in at the time, as well as any other material or photos to help explain Earthships.
The talk is open to any members of the public and will be quite informal.
We hope interested people in the Kamloops area will come and ask lots of questions. If anybody has any experience in any area of sustainable housing, please do come; we'd love to meet you!
