Enviro-Mich message from "Upland Hills" <quiet@igc.org>

                            with Dave Verdier
               at Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center

    Earthships are an off-the-grid housing concept initiated by 
Michael Reynolds of Taos, New Mexico.  They are built with recycled 
car tires and pop cans, as well as wood and plaster.  The Earthship 
concept has been evolving for 30 years.  Dave Vernier enrolled with 
Solar Survival Architecture in July where he is now working towards 
certification as an Earthship builder.

    Dave's slide presentation will be a visual journey from the ground 
up.  He will explain the building basics, including the rain catch and 
energy systems, as well as the conceptual overview.  He will also show 
a video about an Earthship mansion - "Dennis Weaver's Earthship".

    $10 suggested donation; followed by a community potluck lunch and 
optional reed gathering with visit to the strawbale studio building 
site.  Call (248)693-1021 for information and directions to the Center.
