Ecovillage member Candy recently attended a 3 week workshop in Tasmania to build an Earthship home. Candy writes: “Dani is the one who puts together the workshops. She’s got a great team that I thought gave us a thorough understanding, empowering and hands on experience of building an Earthship. They have lots of experience in other natural building. Dani has worked on many council approved builds and can give us some insight into planning requirements.
