A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

Rod’s hobbit house

Rod Rylander has lived in indigenous villages in the Philippines and in Belize, and when he came to Earthaven he decided he would build as close to the ground (meaning, green, local and inventive) as possible. His “hobbit house” in the Lower Rosy Branch Terraces neighborhood now gets lots of visitors curious to see his mud brick walls, thatched roof, “world door,” and the funky, cozy interior he’s been creating with a continuous parade of inspired helpers. Ros and company have been building a small methane digestor, and many of us are eagerly awaiting the propane liberating results.
