Earthship Building Workshop June 6-8

There will be an Earthship Building workshop June 6-8 in Olive Hill. What is an Earthship, you ask?  It is a self-sustainable home created using recycled materials which, with the cooperation of the dweller, provides food, water, electricity, waste-management, and heating/cooling processes completely off-the-grid.  You do not have to have any special skills to learn how to build an earthship. It is hard work but a really great hands on way of learning. For more information, contact Rhonda Barracks at or 606-316-1223 or visit the Kentucky Earthship Group's Facebook page to learn more about Earthships and the upcoming workshop:
