Homer Junior High Science Club Visits the Freeville Earthship



Homer Junior High Science club visited the Freeville Earthship owned by Chad and Courtney DeVoe. The off-grid home is designated an Earthship home by meeting six criteria and is only one of three homes in New York State of this type. Highlights of the home include being built from recycled materials including tires, bottles and cans, use of solar panels for electricity, water reclaiming system for all water use in the home, and a greenhouse for growing fruits and vegetables. Students enjoyed the unique attributes of the home and learning what it takes to live off the grid!
