Simply Living Tour of Blue Rock Station, Ohio’s Original Earthship!
July 29, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm$10
Re-thinking is the first step in a journey to create a sustainable living way of life. Take a tour of the common rooms of the 2,200 square foot house that utilizes tires, cans, old barn wood, bottles, straw bales and mud to form a home that is heated by the sun, earth and wood, and provides a comfortable place to live.
After touring the main space, we will have a chance to tour the straw bale “chicken chalet”, straw bale sleeping cabins with living roofs, water collection systems, a plastic bottle greenhouse made of over 1K 2-liter plastic pop bottles, a rain garden, composting, a solar oven, woven fences from brush, and more!
We will have an opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of this active farm and spend some time chatting about the latest trends in sustainability – or the realities of living sustainably in a consumer-oriented culture. Travel time is about 1 hr 30 mins. Drive yourself directly or carpool with Simply Living. For carpooling, contact Sarah Edwards <email@example.com> and put “Bluerock” in the subject line.
