GARBAGE WARRIOR COMES TO MELBOURNE
At Melbourne's State of Design festival in July, a world leader in sustainable housing for over 40 years, architect Michael Reynolds will be holding two informative public talks.
Michael Reynolds designs and builds homes that heat and cool themselves and built from natural and recycled materials, produce their own electricity, collect their own water, treat their own sewage and grow their own food. He is the author of seven books, the initiator of three off-grid communities, subject of the documentary ‘Garbage Warrior’ and travels with his team around the world demonstrating Earthship/sustainable principles.
Michael’s recent international projects include: a teahouse in the Netherlands, a sustainable home in Nicaragua, an eco resort in Jamaica, hurricane relief in Mexico, tsunami relief in India, a residence in France and demonstrations in England, Scotland, Norway, Spain, Japan, Bolivia, Bonaire and Honduras.
At his talks in Melbourne and Bendigo respectively he will talk about his experiences and how to implement his strategies for conservation into Australian homes.
This is a must visit destination for everyone concerned about the environment and the impact we have on it.
