Join us for this rare opportunity to hear Michael Reynolds – the “Garbage Warrior” – speak about Earthships and his sustainable principles during his first visit from New Mexico to Australia.
For over 40 years, architect Michael Reynolds has been teaching the world how to live sustainably, promoting a holistic way of living that involves natural and recycled materials, renewable energy and self-generated food and water supplies. Michael is a highly successful author, and has inspired a recent documentary, ‘Garbage Warrior,’ which celebrates his life and work.
Thursday 23 July from 6pm
Michael designs and builds homes that heat and cool themselves and 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 initiator of 3 off-grid communities and travels with his team around the world demonstrating Earthship/sustainable principles.
Michael’s 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.
