"We will have to attend one of your classes to really know. While I love the idea of saving tires from a dump. There is no way of knowing what they might leech into the soil."

"Carlos Bill, This type of building sounds fascinating.  How does monolithic adobe construction compare with an earth ship. http://youtu.be/L9jdIm7grCY  "

Profile Information

About Me:
I taught in Phx for 14 years. In May of 2010 I quit and since then have been working on organic farms and practicing earthen building. I have an educational travel company that incorporates Spanish immersion, eco-adventures, cultural/historical tours, volunteer work, trainings in solar, permaculture, aquaponics, and greywater in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. As I return to Phoenix, my goal is to teach about earthen building (structures, plasters, and paints)

Nope. It's just west of the airport here in Phoenix. It once incorporated Golden Gate, but now LCM is just a few square blocks of remaining properties south of Buckeye Rd to I-17, 16th to 7th streets.

I have seen many ‘backyard’ biodiesel processors and I am confident the one I built is one of highest quality processors out there. I am making high quality biodiesel and can teach people who are interested. I'm moving soon so I will have a processor for sale and can also pass on my oil account to a lucky person.

Please…
