I got the following plea from the California Institute of Earth Architecture:
On December 12, 2018, the CalEarth campus was closed down by the San Bernardino County Fire Department. We cannot reopen until we complete a fire access road, which is scheduled to be built February 14-March 21, 2019 alongside a series of civil improvements required by the City of Hesperia, for an estimated cost of $165,072.
In addition to the civil improvements, we are working with the ICC (International Code Council) Evaluation Services to develop a standardized procedure for testing and assessing SuperAdobe in order to allow permitting–this would be a significant accomplishment in making this technology more mainstream and accessible.
We are committed to raising the funds to complete the civil improvement requirements and completing the ICC evaluation process, but cannot re-open the campus without your help. You can donate at www.calearth.org
