Academy, Day 1

Today was just a tad overwhelming. We made it to the site on time and took the orientation tour. We saw a lot of earthship stuff in just a few hours. No big details as the classes don’t start until tomorrow, but a lot of new and old stuff. I even have some pictures.

EarthshipOldModel

This first picture is one we didn’t go inside of, but it is what you see most typically when you do earthship searches on the net.

TheTowers

This one, on the other hand, is completely new. They call it The Towers. As you can see, this is one of the first fully two storied earthship buildings. It’s was pretty nice in side too.

SmallKitchen

It was designed to be a two apartment kind of structure. The above picture is of one of the kitchen units.

Shower

This picture is of the interior of one of the showers. It’s difficult to grasp it completely without being able to look around, but I can tell you that it was quite snazzy.

Tomorrow, work starts in earnest. We’ll be working pretty steady from 9 to 17h, six days a week, with extra opportunities to volunteer for extra work on Sundays.

Go, go, go.
