I have been meaning to get back to this–earthships has a presence in Haiti. Absolutely wonderful the work that they’re doing….it’s sustainable, and helps them to help themselves…I’m in awe of the ingenuity of the design, as always.
I have questions, however, of the tires being used as a collection of the sewage water. As the solids break down, which takes some time, won’t that bring the toxic chemicals of the tires with it as it leaches back into the soil and the plants?
Parts I love–the hand crank rock crusher (using something without electricity) and the artsy design (of course).
I’m uncertain from reading this page whether they’re still in Haiti…I hope so. Also, there is a donate button on the right of the page for Malawi, Africa.
