GSC visits Earth Ships in Taos, NM

Stella and Neil visited Earthship's world headquarters in Taos NM. They interviewed Shawn and Erica who are building their own home in the area out of shipping containers, converting them into an earthship hybrid. Neil and Stella also toured earthship buildings to research how to integrate earth-bag construction with the holistic approach of earthship design.

Check the latest earth building photos from our travels in New Mexico on this slide show.

An Overview of 2008-2009 and Visions for the Future

Over the past year and a half through traveling, building, and teaching in the USA and eight foreign countries, Stella and Neil have sought to integrate inner transformation and physical manifestation through the empowerment of others. They have done extensive research into building domes in wet climates and designing super-adobe/earth-bag presentations and workshops in foreign countries. During their travels Neil and Stella continued their education by attending workshops and conferences on earth building, permaculture, inner transformation, and by touring and documenting sustainable communities and buildings throughout Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, South East Asia, Egypt, and Turkey.

Creative Projects:
Neil and Stella are currently creating their own business called Guiding Star Creations and are planning a workshop in Mexico and to return to Australia in 2010.

During the past year and a half Stella used her skills as a photographer to document their journey for the purpose of producing educational materials and creative projects. Another creative project underway is a film called “Home”.
