Regenerative Home Intensive
May 10 - 18 — La Garita, Colorado (near Alamosa)
Eight days of intensive learning at a remote site in Southern Colorado. We will put the final touches on the Regenerative Home. The home is self-sufficient, low-cost, using appropriate technology for these times. We will experience passive and active solar arrays, passive solar design, rocket stoves, rammed earth building, adobe brick vault building, grey and black water use, berming, plasters and paints, permaculture site design, building codes, plumbing, electrical, passive refrigeration, solar water distillation, and solar hot water heating. Experience an amazing natural setting - A stream with resident beavers runs by the site. Learn all the details of construction with lectures, slides, and hands on classes. You will come away from this experience fired up to build your own home with some further guidance.

Interesting, but I would not haste to call this better than an earth ship (sales pitch). I did not see any unique aspects to the construction which added a new perspective on efficiency. Music was distracting, but otherwise I am impressed by the activity.

Ok, well try the fact that this building is 98% adobe instead of cement. Earthships are all cement, how can they possibly compare in ecofriendliness of the structural component. Also, I'm using a number of improved and updated systems that build on what Mike and co. have done. Don't get me wrong, I love what they do and was totally inspired by earthships. That's why I build the Regenerative Home. Because I realized I could demonstrate a higher level of efficiency. The video was never meant to be a finished edit! Keep that in mind. turn off the music if it distracts you! hehe
