Ramsay Inspirational Series: Garbage Warrior

March 17th, 2014

garbage warrior

garbage warrior is a 2007 film about architect mike reynolds, inventor of the earthship style of building.

what is an earthship? its a building style designed to be autonomous, minimizing its reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels. the ‘garbage’ adjective comes from the fact that local resources are utilized, such as tires, cans and bottles.

we might not want to build our city with earthships alone, but what the underlying concepts are and how reynolds goes to the highest level to make it even possible to explore these concepts is fascinating and could soon be our passionate plight.

saturday march 22nd we will be watching this great film so come on down and join us.
