 Registration is closed for this event
This course is for anyone thinking about building their own home and anyone interested in learning about Earthships.

This course teaches:

  • What needs to be considered when building an environmentally sensitive home as well as what is involved in building an Earthship
  • Basic building physics which can shed light on how all buildings work
  • How a building can use the sun instead of central heating and how to build in natural, passive ventilation
  • The relative merits of micro-renewable technologies like solar, biomass, wind and hydro
  • How you can harvest and recycle water
  • What you need to think about when sourcing environmentally-friendly materials and how to avoid the most damaging materials

Course participants will also gain the knowledge and confidence to take their ideas to the next stage. Everyone who completes the course will receive a certificate, which will be sent via email after the course.

This course will build on the good work of Mike Reynolds and focus on adapting Earthships to the UK and other European climates.
