EARTHSHIP BRIGHTON CROWDFUNDING LAUNCHED

Brighton’s Earthship is turning to people power to prepare it for its next phase. The picture above shows the Earthship in 2003 during our first phase of construction…

The crowdfunding campaign aims to raise £20,000 for the vital upgrade of the building’s renewable energy and water systems.Visitors and organised school tours continue to pour into Stanmer Park to visit and learn from Europe’s first full scale earthship demo project.  It’s over a decade since we built the Brighton Earthship, and since then it has evolved into an award-winning eco community centre, that hosts education events, practical green building courses, and community activities.  The power and water systems now need an upgrade to enable all of this awareness raising activity to further flourish and expand.

The campaign can be found here: www.lowcarbon.co.uk/earthship-brighton

Earthship Brighton, located in the South Downs National Park, is an off-grid eco-building designed to get all the electricity and drinking water it needs from the sun and the rain.The Low Carbon Trust needs to raise £20,000 in 30 days to acquire a new ultraviolet water filtration system to purify rainwater for use inside the building, purchase new batteries to store electricity generated by the solar panels, and build a straw bale unit to securely house the new batteries.

If you have seen this amazing building first hand or are inspired by the work that has gone into and what it achieves now, then…

Please donate a bit to get the Earthship back up and running for the local community.
