About

We are asking the support of YOU, the wonderful change makers in our lives that are willing to put a little (or a lot) of support into an inspiring idea to make the first family dwelling Earthship on First Nations territory. It serves firstly as a sustainable, Mother Earth Friendly recycled building for a family and secondly serves as an example of the amazing things we can do when we come together to empower one another. 

We will use all donations for: 

* tools & equipment rental 

* volunteer hospitality (meals & supplies) 

* large items such as water storage, batteries, solar panels, windows, concrete/ hempcrete 

*workshop honorariums for facilitators to teach relevant Earthship skills and techniques 

" MOTHER EARTH WILL PROVIDE EVERYTHING
WE NEED TO SURVIVE"
- Elder Thunder Child Marie Knockwood, Mi'kmaq Nation    

" It takes a community to raise a child….it also takes
a community to BUILD AN EARTHSHIP…" Starchild  Eliza Knockwood 

Risks and challenges

Our challenge is to sustain our volunteer engagement. We have much to do and are working to make it within a set budget. We have some wonderful engagement from First Nations youth wanting to build it in their community, but need to sustain our momentum of supplies and input of skilled participants to see this dream become fully a reality.
