I just thought I would post a message out here as the forum seems to have been reset. If anyone is looking for Earthship experience, there are a number of us who are either getting close to starting building, or have already started up in the Bancroft area of Ontario. Some of you may have seen the youtube video of the Potter's Earthship up here, which was the first one built in Canada.
There is a meetup group in Ottawa that regularly gets together to go help out at various builds. They were down in Spencerville, ON and up here to Bancroft a number of times during the summer. Check them out at: Earthship Ottawa.
Here is the blog of one build that has already started this summer, up in Bancroft: Earthbound Project. Philippe Charmet is going with the owner-builder experience, so it's much slower going than if you get the EB crew up to build your home for you. Still lots to do at his place, if you're looking to volunteer.
I have a blog as well, which I started when I went down to New Mexico to participate in the Earthship Academy. Right now most of my posts are about surviving the Bancroft winter in a fifth-wheel trailer, but I will continue posting as we get our Earthship plans settled, get the permit and throughout the building experience. You can find it at: Sailing The Earth.
Earthships are for everyone.

Earthship construction drawings are designed to meet standard building code requirements so you can get a permit no matter where you are. Earthship Biotecture is beyond LEED Architecture. Earthships are green buildings that meet standard building codes. EarthshipBiotecture is based on the work of principal architect, Michael Reynolds. (see: media resume)
