    Lauren and Zac Craig recently prepared the land on a property just outside of Clifton to build a passive solar earth-berm Earthship with old tires, discarded glass bottles and other used materials. The start of a series of Earthship construction workshops and work days begins April 12–13 with a weekend workshop on tire foundation. Also pictured is the Craig’s son, Elliot.
