What you'll do

This is a tour to showcase the different systems that support 'off-the-grid' living. how photovoltaic stand alone systems work, how to harvest water through catchment systems, how to take advantage of the sun to heat your home, and cool your pantry through passive solar design. Additionally, I can share information about how to design, build, and grow in a greenhouse, as well as various ways of construction such as straw bale, adobe, and conventional framing. We'll also take a 30 min hike to the top of our property to take in some amazing views of the Sante Fe Mountain ranges and the valley. Bring a camera, it's gorgeous.

Kali & Sonja

We have been living off-the-grid on this mesa near Santa Fe for 28 years; during this time we have designed and built many off-the-grid homes and all the systems to support a comfortable life style away from the city and suburbs with a minimal carbon foot print. We have also helped many folks to create their own solar homes.
