Please join us for a lovley evening at the Seattle Trash Studio. This the flagship project of Earthship Seattle. A beautiful location in the Columbia City district of Seattle.

We will have people start arriving at 5:30, but the actual meeting will start at 6:00 pm. This is going to be a “Snackluck” event, because we know many of you will just be getting off work and will be hungry. Please bring a snack to share. We will tour the Trash Studio and have an open conversation about Earthships and sustainable building in general. The address to the Trash Studio will be announced as we get closer to the meetup.

Workshop @ Natural Mystic Festival 2017

Earthship Seattle is proud to be doing a workshop at the Natural Mystic Festival. Join us the weekend of Aug 4th ticket info is listed in the event. Courtney Skony and Jamie Owens will be taking you down the rabbit hole of Earthships and sustainable living. At this workshop, you will learn about a less than zero carbon footprint off grid house called an Earthship.

We will carefully go over the 6 principals of Biotecture:

  1. Thermal/solar heating and cooling.
  2. Solar & wind electricity.
  3. Contained sewage treatment.
  4. Building with natural and recycled materials.
  5. Water harvesting,
  6. Food production. 

We promise to show you lots of pictures of Earthships from around the world. Then we will have a question and answer time. After which we will teach you how to turn your household trash into building materials. Then we will have a creative conversation about the things we can build with our upcycled building materials. We are most excited to network with you about our current big project. To build a living breathing Earthship here in Seattle. We have 501c3 sponsorship and are not afraid to use it. First, we need the land. Then we will order the custom designs from Biotecture Headquarters. Next, we permit this beautiful structure. Then, at last, we build it! Please join us Cascadians! We look forward to sharing our knowledge with you.

Jamie Owens is one of the project directors on the Earthship Seattle Visitor Center team. She helped to found the organization Earthship Seattle in 2012. Jamie has a strong understanding of the systems and principals that make an Earthship structure what it is. She had lead countless workshops and demonstrations over the years. Most recently she went to Taos NM Biotecture headquarters, where she was able to ask the legendary Architect Michael Reynolds a burning question. “Is it possible for an Earthship to work in Seattle?” “Yes” is the answer. She is driven and inspired to build a living breathing Earthship to be used as a visitor center. Spreading awareness, and clear the way to a new way of living. Commissioning the perfect Earthship design for a Seattle climate. Jamie and her partners Courtney Skony, and Emily Zupon joined forces with the Cascadia Now organization for 501c3 sponsorship. They are raising the money to do this project. Jamie dreams of having her own Earthship in the not too distant future.


Earthship Seattle Visitor Center Fundraiser Dance Party

Earthship Seattle and Uniting Souls are proud to bring you: EARTHSHIP

On June 9th 2017 we will celebrate life and sustainability at this fundraiser event. Earthship Seattle has joined forces with the Cascadia Now! Non profit organization for a 501c3 sponsored project. We are raising the money to build a Global Model Earthship here in Seattle to be used as a visitor center. Earthships are radically sustainable off grid homes that are made from repurposed materials. If you don’t know what an Earthship is exactly, you will by the end of the night. We will have a packed line up of your favorite local DJ’s in the main room. In addition to some great music, we will be highlighting art that is made from trash in the small room. There will be informational booths for you to learn more about Earthships and Biotecture. Also you will pick up the skill of turning your own trash into building materials.

Several times throughout the night you will notice models on the main stage wearing the latest in trash fashion. We encourage you to wear your favorite upcycled fashion as well. There will be a contest/prize for the best item.

The proceeds from this night’s event will go into the fund to complete our mission of building this visitor center.

The Trash Studio is an Earthship inspired tool shed which will act as the first demonstration of Earthship principles in Seattle.

It’s the first step toward showing the community and the local authorities that you can build cheap, super sustainable buildings that reuse trash and turn it into beautiful healthy buildings for the future.

This first project is critically important because it’s also acting as a test which will eventually help people in the greater Seattle area know how to design for our climate and how to get building permits for Earthships.

The building will also be used to demonstrate and teach sustainability and Permaculture in the years to come.

The Trash Studio is not a full on Earthship. An Earthship is a set of 6 principles: building with recycled and natural materials, passive heating and cooling, rain water harvesting, renewable electricity production, in door food production, and contained sewage treatment.

The Trash Studio is not implementing the Earthship principles about electricity, food, or sewage. It’s partially implementing the Earthship principles of passive heating and cooling, and rain water harvesting. It is implementing to an extreme the Earthship principle about recycled and natural materials. As a matter of fact, we have used absolutely no money on the build so far, and instead have been relying on volunteer work, various local gift economy networks, and creativity to turn trash into building materials.
