Building Earthship Houses - Free talk with Ryan Mayne, Thursday 27th March

Imagine living off the grid where houses are cheap to build, can help provide food for the family and are self-heated or cooled all year round.

Ryan Mayne will discuss basic earthship design principals. Find out what is happening around the world with the construction of ecofriendly, sustainable housing. Get tips on making your own home more environmentally friendly and cheaper to live in.


Ryan has been touring earthship houses in the States and has come up with some ways to adapt them for the Sunshine Coast climate.

He has been giving presentations at the local library and we are grateful that he's going to share his enthusiasm for sustainable building with us!
