December 6, 2019, Presentation by Architect Tim Watson on Earthwalk Dwellings
For many years Tim Watson has served as a board member of CES. During that time he also served as founder and president of The Earthwalk Alliance, a nonprofit corporation (EWA). A major project of EWA was developing designs for affordable, regenerative housing. At the beginning of 2019 EWA was disbanded and in its place Earthwalk Dwellings, LLC, was formed to begin actively building and selling the houses.
This project has been the life work of Tim Watson. His action has followed his dream of the Ecozoic era. We are pleased to sponsor this event in which Tim will present on restorative housing and Earthwalk dwellings. For a preview of this event visit his website at EarthwalkDwellings.com.
This presentation will be held in Chapel Hill on December 6, 2019, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
