New Earth Home and Garden's Commitment and Mission Statement
Written by: Tim Watson, Eco-Restorative Architect
We hold athe vision for creating a new generation of homes and buildings.
This new generation of buildings must be seen as a life support system
designed to serve the needs of people as well as all the communities of life
surrounding each building humans inhabit.
These are houses which independently produce their own energy and
store rainwater based resources. In the face of global warming and
continuing erosion of the earth's environmental resource base, we are
committed to participate in the goal of seeing the United States generate
100% of its electricity using renewable resources by 2018, as well as adopt
cutting edge water resource and conservation design. We furthermore are
committed to designing "water management systems" that produce off- building
site water flows mimicking indigenous water flows. This is about creating
water flows which were naturally occurringreplicating natural flows which
occurring before the creation of impervious surfaces and altered topography.
Our inspiration acknowledges that current Hhome design standards are
improving. However, we also know homes which do not produce as much energy
as they consume, and which are completely dependent upon public supplied
treated water, are inherently unsustainable. This is predicated on our
nation's dependence upon fossil fueled electrical generation plants and
their associated energy distribution technology, current diminution of water
resources, and storm water/wastewater environmental impacts.
We are therefore dedicated to the idea that now is the time to employ
immediate-at- hand technologies which can realistically achieve these two
- Adoption of "Net zero" electrical utility usage
whereby as much electrical energy is produced per housing unit as is
- Application of "agrarian earth sciences" whereby
rainwater use and soil management systems render houses beneficial to the
In response to these goals, we are exploring new opportunities to bridge the
gap now separating human system thinking from universal natural system
design. We not only seek to achieve sustainable dynamics between these two
systems; we seek to further apply "eco-restorative design" dynamics as an
integral part of this rebalancing work.
We believe through the application of agrarian earth technologies, it is
possible to transform human habitats such that all life forms can then be
regenerated, enriched, and encouraged to rebalance their own indigenous
natural systems. Such regenerative/restorative thinking is seen to enhance
successful future probabilities for most life forms now co-inhabiting Earth.
The following New Earth Home and Garden mission statement forms the focus
for the "eco-restorative design" thinking to which we are committed:
To build affordable houses which are designed to "restore" Earth's natural
environment to its former health. thereby helping people celebrate and live
their lives in concert with healing the Earth.
