Other Interests: My husband and I are building an earth-sheltered home, similar in design to an Earthship. The build started in Summer 2015 and will mark the second such home in Manitoba. Progress updates will be posted here and at the Manitoba Earthship Project facebook group. If you are interested in volunteering (even just weekends or for a week or two between April and October), please email me. Summer 2016 will be spent pounding earth into tires 🙂
