Michael Reynolds received a standing ovation at Bangalow A&I Hall last Thursday evening. He has dedicated more than half his lifetime to developing an amazing sustainable home built from recyclable materials. It’s fully self-sufficient and it works!
With about $6k, a working model the size of a studio could be built in Mullumbimby in 4–5 days. It’s happening around the world, so it would be great if the Alternative capital of Australia, Byron Shire, showed the initiative to examine closely and then implement it if successful.
The people of Haiti, Anadaman Islands (off India), Jamaica and Sierra Leone appeared well satisfied.
Michael builds with the locals and trains them along the way. Other more elaborate models are now being build in the USA, Norway, Mexico, Holland, Canada, France and England. This is awesome. Watch the DVD Garbage Warrior or visit www.earthship.com for details.
