From Robin and Mike at Regenerative Lifestyles:
Greetings and Happy 2014! Regenerative Lifestyles is dedicated to bringing regenerative education to the Front Range, this year we have many exciting events lined up; Earthship Greenhouse Dome, Earthship Chicken Coop, Aquaponics, Climate Battery, Earthworks, Permaculture Design, Seeds in the Ground Gardenscaping, Permablitz, Film Showings, Childrens Eco-Art Camp, Potlucks, Festivals and More! If you would like to be involved helping to organize these events, and bringing an Earthship Visitor Center to Denver, let us know!
Our first event for this year is community building cob party! Let’s add more mass to the Rocket Mass Heater at Ruckus Ranch in Erie, Colorado. Sunday, February 9, 2014, 10AM. Please bring food to share! Ruckus Ranch , 1878 Old Hwy 52, Erie, CO
As Temperatures drop into the single digits and below all across the country, this simple Rocket Mass Heater provides a means to heat homes for extended periods of time with minimal fuel. We held a workshop and lots of people showed up to learn, build, and stomp cob in freezing temperatures. We are transforming this old barn into a permaculture education space, with rocket mass heat, a passive solar greenhouse, and a kitchen that treats its own waste!
Building community in an educational setting is what helps us pulse with inspiration. This is the perfect setting to dive into permaculture/natural building community. This is a free event, but donations are greatly appreciated, and will go towards future events.
