GRANDMA BUILDS AN EARTHSHIP

By Kent Gunnufson
USA, 2008, 58 min.

This inspirational story is informative and heart warming. It offers insight into one of many possibilities for our nation to achieve energy independence. It is the story of a 67 year old grandmother who builds her totally off-the-grid home, her Earthship. Pascha?s 12 year pioneering effort fought through a mountain of regulatory barriers to bring alternative (non standard) construction methods to the high Rockies. Using alternative building materials to create an energy self-sufficient home in one of the country?s harshest environments was a monumental challenge. Despite pessimistic views, Pasch refused to give up and forged ahead to achieve her mountain dream.

Following the film there will be a discussion with the filmmaker and members of the green building movement with a focus on geothermal heating and passive and solar energy.
