Hey Everyone, I recently completed my Earthship Experience and suffice to say it was nothing short of phenomenal. I really want to thank everyone for supporting me through this endeavor and am looking towards new horizons. I am in the process of creating the blog based on my journey as well as prepping myself for my next step (serving yet another year for Americorps) This year I am going to be focused more on water resource management and hopefully implement alot of different methods of water conservation methods such as the varieties of rain water catchment that i learned in New Mexico. I am going to be placed with the California Environmental Protection Agency's Water Quality Control Board. Although i am covering a large spread of topics and areas it will all come together in good time. After all the Pyramids weren't built in a day. Again I want to sincerely thank everyone who supported me.

Hello Everyone!

 Recently I have been accepted to be an apprentice over in Taos, New Mexico working with Earthship Biotecture this coming August. I am really enthusiastic about this opportunity as it will help me further my dream of designing and building Zero Net Energy (ZNE) Passive Home cohousing Communities. 
I realize this is a step by step process of acquiring the skills, knowledge and of course the capital to start such a task of one day reaching my goal of running a ZNE community. I plan on making this energy efficient community a cohousing community. The general mission of cohousing is to "improve the world, one neighborhood at a time". It is in these communities that collaborative living encourages trust, comradery, support, and a healthy social environment for all residents. The structure and design of the community creates a focal point on a central courtyard which promotes social interaction with all members.
 Although currently I am over my head in debt with student loans I am still managing to get by working through the Americorps program while sponging up knowledge on energy efficiency, engineering, and sustainability in homes from my place of work [Sonoma County Energy Independence Program].
It is here that i come to you, for i am asking for a small amount of assistance in raising a little capital and for you to sponsor me in my travels from Santa Rosa to Taos to proceed in my next step of my journey. Unfortunately for the program i need to provide my own food, transportation, and lodging..which comes out to be a pretty penny. Any kind of contribution will be sincerely appreciated and know that your supporting a great cause. I will send out newsletters, updates, and photos to those of you who donate to help me with my cause.
Many Thanks,
Adam Zwick
