Workshop and Public Talk
Thursday 24th February 2011
For over forty years Michael Reynolds has been designing and building homes that heat and cool themselves, are built from natural and recycled materials, produce their own electricity, collect their own water, treat their own sewage and grow their own food.
He is the author of seven books, the initiator of 3 off-grid communities. The largest community, Greater World Earthship Community, currently has 60 totally off-grid homes with a plan for 130 total. He is subject of the documentary Garbage Warrior and travels with his team around the world demonstrating Earthship/sustainable principles. More recently he has been involved in earthquake and disaster relief.
In 2006, he spearheaded the New Mexico Sustainable Development Testing Site Act which was signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson. Recent international projects include: a teahouse in the Netherlands, a sustainable home in Nicaragua, an eco resort in Jamaica, hurricane relief in Mexico, tsunami relief in India, a residence in France and demonstrations in England, Scotland, Norway, Spain, Japan, Bolivia, Bonaire and Honduras.
In July 2010, Michael Reynolds took a small team to build a earthquake relief structure in Port au Prince. He will be returning this January to install independent power and water systems. In 2010 Taos County approved the world’s first Sustainable Development Testing Site where he is currently experimenting with advanced methods of carbon-zero housing for disaster relief and economically autonomous communities.
