First Ever Urban Earthship Coming Soon to West Philadelphia

First Ever Urban Earthship Coming Soon to West Philadelphia

The world’s apparently first urban Earthship (an entirely sustainable building fashioned from recycled materials) will soon take shape at a vacant lot at 675 North 41st Street. The lot was donated to the cause by lot owner Thomas L. Miller. First proposed by Love, Loving, Love, Inc. founder Rashida Ali-Campbell, the “West Philadelphia Earthship will house a Philadelphia branch of Love, Loving, Love, Inc., which specializes in holistic health education. The organization is planning to offer healthy-living workshops and other free community activities in their new Earthship office.” The foundation of the Earthship has already been laid, and the main…

How the first urban Earthship is getting neighbors acclimated to its mission

How the first urban Earthship is getting neighbors acclimated to its mission

There’s a dirt lot at 41st and Warren streets in West Philly teeming with hundreds of old tires. To the Lower Lancaster Avenue community, the tires are an eyesore. A disheveled heap of trash. Another blemish blotting the face of a neighborhood plagued by poverty so deep, it was deemed one of the nation’s first Promise Zones, areas identified by the White House as needing extra federal investment. To Yeadon nonprofit LoveLovingLove, those tires aren’t a blemish — they’re a rubber foundation. They’re not a disheveled trash heap — they’ve been meticulously positioned within the donated property. And while it may be an eyesore right now, it will…

Earthship Philadelphia lands on 41st Street

Earthship Philadelphia lands on 41st Street

SURROUNDED BY hundreds of tires and aluminum cans in a vacant lot on 41st Street near Lancaster Avenue, Rashida Ali-Campbell said that after years of trying, she and like-minded residents will start building Earthship Philadelphia all weekend, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in West Philly. “I first saw the earthships in a movie called ‘Garbage Warrior,’ ” she said. “They were in Taos, New Mexico. And I thought, ‘How could I get one in Philadelphia?’ ” She contacted Jonah Reynolds, who has built earthships with their inventor, his father Michael Reynolds, for decades in Taos. Reynolds will teach West Philly…

Off the Grid

Off the Grid

from gridphilly.com In West Philadelphia, organizers use tires and earth to create an ambitious and energy-passive home At a glance, the open-air lot at the corner of 41st and Lancaster appears to be littered with garbage—tires piled up in the northwest corner, mounds of dirt and cement mixed in with empty bottles and cans. But these familiar objects are not strewn about randomly; they have been intentionally collected to build the first urban Earthship. When it’s completed, it could be the most sustainable building in Philadelphia. An Earthship is a passive solar house made from both natural and recycled materials…
