Adam Kokesh and his fiancé Macey Tomlin, have just had their offer on 11 acres in Ashfork Arizona accepted. They plan on building the first ever Sapioponic Earthship. This is a massive project, and could take up to 9 months. They are asking for donations for supplies, including: cement, rebar, tires, bottles, and cans. As well as many 76″x34″ and 76″x46″ standard double pane PDRs as they can get. They are also open to volunteers, and will be working out a deal with individuals who are willing to worktrade while staying on property. If you are interesting in learning more, check out the website or email Adam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Freedom Homestead Academy in Ashfork, Arizona will offer the ability to experiment with alternative building techniques, develop and distribute new open-source technologies for homesteading, and produce videos and other educational materials on all subjects relating to free living. They hope to host a one week Freedom Homestead Workshop in July of 2016. Get your muscles ready for some tire pounding!
This will also be a good opportunity for any fulltiming families, homeschoolers, or unschoolers with older kids who really want to learn by getting a hands on experience. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Adam Kokesh went to the Earthship academy in Taos, NM., and now he is ready to build his own Sapioponic home.
