Florida’s First Earthship

Have you heard about the construction of Florida’s first Earthship?

It is being built on a 10 acre property in Myakka City, Florida that is zoned agricultural.  They have plans to educate and involve people on natural building, permaculture, zero energy construction, and sustainable technology.

There are also ideas in the works to integrate shipping container houses, solar powered domes, and more.

The tires were collected locally and the dirt to fill them was dug out of the property itself which is now a wonderful looking pond.

In the center of the home there are wetlands that recycle greywater and grows food producing plants.  This water is also used for toilet flushing.  You’ll learn more about this in the video from Bryan Roberts the Earthship General Contractor.
