Our mission is to empower ourselves and others with natural building and sustainable living techniques.
It's a busy time for us! Over the winter months, I will be working on an earthbag building article for Mother Earth News, editing the instructional video - Dirt Simple: How to build an Earthbag Tiny House for Under $1500, and writing a book of the same name.
Morgan and Mary Jane have been homesteading off-grid since before they built their first earthbag home in 2009. They held their initial public workshops in 2011, while building a sun room addition on to their earthbag roundhouse. In 2016 they started construction on a larger earthship-inspired earthbag house and have held regular natural building and sustainable living workshops ever since.
Why build with earthbags?
Earthbags are a great medium for building strong, versatile, inexpensive structures. They can be used in applications that would be too moist for wood, cob, or strawbale. They can be used to build above and below ground houses, sheds, root cellars, stemwalls, greenhouses, walipinis, freestanding walls, cisterns, spring boxes, storm and emergency shelters, pools, steps, and many, many other things. Earthbags are non-toxic, fireproof, bugproof, moldproof, rotproof, bulletproof, impactproof, and floodproof.
