Futurity Colorado is near the end of County Road 185C near Buena Vista.

The location is 1.5 miles southeast from there. Beyond Futurity (last 1 mile) 4×4 is required if driving. Or one can park a mile away. If flying then bus to Buena Vista can pick up there. With sufficient notice. The Weather is at 10,400 feet so bring warm clothes but also swimming suit for hot springs, creeks, rivers and a few ponds. Town of Buena Vista, Colorado is 20 miles away. I go to town once a week for supplies. Plus do excursions after work to enjoy life to the fullest. Can pickup if arrangements in advance only. Only 4×4 vehicles can make it to the property.

I will teach most aspects of Earthship designs. Tell you what I did wrong and right.

  1. Hi there! I’m Juliette. I’m interested in volunteering on your property. I love gardening, sustainability , cooking and learning. I am very chill and have a great attitude if I do say so myself. I was wondering if you had any availability early august and if there were any more details you’d like to mention. I am a young adult looking to explore and understand myself and this world better.

    1. Hi Juliette. The hosts usually don’t read the comment sections. Visit their websites and consider contacting them via the e-mail they provided in the contact details section. Wish you good luck and a nice volunteer experience.

  2. My name Leonard Morgan I’ve built housing over 20 yrs always wanted to build an earthshipd please contact me.
