January 13th - 28th Workshop

'Ghipship', our beautiful, mystical, mythical Earthship wont happen without a supportive community around us. Our first workshop will take place in January, with the hope to build the tyre wall, cooling tubes, vapor barrier, Northern stem wall, grey planter cell and a bottle wall. 

Seeking volunteers now!

Workshop Details. 

For 16 days call Mollongghip home as you;  camp, eat, play, boogie and build an absolutely stunning Earthship.

If you're looking for an opportunity to make a real difference in the world, and have fun doing it,  consider volunteering to build an earthship! This unique building design is all about sustainability, using recycled materials (tyres, botte, cans, carpet, bricks) and renewable energy to create a home that's both beautiful and sustainable. As a volunteer, you'll get to be part of the hands-on construction process -- everything from pounding tyres to building bottle bricks and setting up the core components that make an earthship tick, like the planter cell and cooling tubes.


With the chance to camp on site you'll be fully immersed in the community atmosphere, working together with others to create something truly special. Whether you want to stay in a swag, tent, or medium sized caravans we've got room for you.
