As of today (June 29) we officially have our building permit to start construction on our Earthship in the Interlake of Manitoba. The first day of construction is Sunday July 1st and every day after that with the exception of Folk Fest (weather permitting) we will be working on the place starting with phase 1. The first phase will last 1-2 months and involves retaining tire walls, buttresses, insulation wrap and cistern installation, some roughed in plumbing.
If you'd like to join us in the process for a day or more as a volunteer email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
