Last summer, Earthship Biotecture visited the Six Nations territory to build a simple survival Earthship for Flower, grandmother of five and lifelong member of the Six Nations community. She had been living in a trailer for 30 years.
Marianne Griffith, director of Building Better, committed herself to four years of ground work to see this project come to fruition.
Construction was completed in 11 days! The Huffington Post made this video about it.
Flower is opening her Earthship to the public on Sunday, 30th July. This is the new, simple survival wood model earthship – the first of its kind. This model showcases low cost, low tech systems, with the total material budget at ~$40,000. We will be running tours and raising funds for the next Six Nations build: the Mohawk Seedkeepers’ Earthship.
If you can’t make it, but would like to contribute to the build, you can do so here.
