Mission

Purpose: The mission of Living Paradigm is to empower people by creating home ownership of shelters erected from reclaimed materials. These dwellings will be environmentally responsible and healthy places for those that inhabit them and will contribute to the culture, vitality, and individuality of the community.

Living Paradigm addresses the social, economic and environmental basis of sustainable living by building low-cost homes (under $50k), with volunteer or apprenticeship labor, using materials that would otherwise go to the landfill.

Programs: Living Paradigm has begun a homesteading program for affordable, reclaimed materials housing. We also have a “Resource Rescue Co-op,” which is a team of volunteers that help obtain the materials needed to build the homes.

Major Events: Major events include tours of reclaimed materials homes, construction volunteer educational workshops, and deconstruction events.

Volunteer Opportunities: Construction, deconstruction, resource rescue co-op, grant writing, general administrative.

Speakers Bureau: Speakers available to discuss a variety of topics. Please call or visit our website for further details.

Publications: ReNews, a free e-mail newsletter service. To sign up to receive this newsletter, please go to http://www.livingparadigm.org.
