Petaluma native Miguel Elliott of Living Earth Structures has recently returned from a community in Northern Italy called Damanhur, where he was working on building an earthen hut, which looks like something right out of “The Hobbit's” Shire.
DREAMS OF DAMANHUR
When: 7 p.m. Sunday, March 24
Where: Aqus Café Foundry Wharf, 189 H St.
Besides going there to build, he also went to learn more about this eco-village that serves as a model for its many sustainable living practices and innovative approaches towards spiritual development, cooperative living, art and science.
On Sunday, March 24, Elliott will give a screening of his film “Dreams of Damanhur,” which features the story behind Damanhur and its underground Temple of Humankind.
In addition, Elliott will share photos of his latest projects in natural building, including a dome in Africa, a house in Argentina, ovens around the counties, benches in jail farms, projects in schools, and work at the retreat center Isis Oasis.
Elliott is hoping to educate the public on the possibilities of building with the Earth as a way of helping to build community.
The program begins at 7 p.m. at Aqus Café Foundry Wharf, 189 H St. Admission is free. Space is limited.
