Montreal, December 23rd 2012 – The Valhalla movement plans the construction of a 100% self-sustainable community near Montreal. Beginning in spring, the movement will record and share all the steps accomplished to build earthships; an environmentally friendly type of house made of natural and recycled materials.
The earthships will be built on Valhalla’s 60 acre piece of land in La Prairie. Last summer, Valhalla’s members reshaped their grounds to include a pond, trees, flowers and more than 7500 feet of gardening surface. With the help of its members from all over North America, Valhalla expects to finish building their earthships by fall 2013.
“When people hear about sustainable, off-the-grid living, they usually picture primitive homes divorced from the comforts of the 21st century. And rightfully so, as most sustainable solutions proposed until now have fit that description. Earthships, however, offer all of the comforts of modern homes and more,” says Jordan Lejuwaan, a member who came to help from California.
