Student/Volunteers each pay a fee to work alongside the Earthship building crew, this fee varies depending on each project.
The student/volunteer fees are the major funding for our projects, and go directly to the project the student signs up for. These funds are used for purchasing the building materials, transport costs, and on ground expenses to get the build done. All other donations that are made to each project also contribute to the above expenses, but it is the student/volunteer fees that provide the major funding for these projects. So, join our crews and fund the project of your choice and help those that may be less fortunate than ourselves.
