My name is Brennan Blazer Bird and I am an ecological educator, natural builder, water harvester, & appropriate techie based in the SF Bay Area. I have been leading ecological projects with youth and adults both nationally & internationally for the past 12 years. In college I started a solar cooking club and taught students how to build and use their own solar cookers out of cardboard, glass, and aluminum foil. For the past 10 years I have taught students how to build earthen benches and other structures using earthen building techniques and repurposed trash in the form of plastic stuffed bottle bricks (http://www.earthbench.org/). I’ve presented at the National Bioneers Conference for 4 years, given a TEDx Talk, and led workshops at festivals and events throughout the West Coast. I'm now full-time developing SolutionCraft - an ecological design, build, and teach venture devoted to spreading ecological literacy through simple and appropriate technologies. SolutionCraft’s goal is to make ecological literacy as accessible as possible using a multi-media and multi-verse approach, from school assemblies to workshops to home and land-project scale ecological installations. I am building up my skill sets and can now teach and build everything from rainwater and greywater systems; earthen tiny homes; outdoor kitchens and bathhouses; rocket stoves and solar ovens; and more. My vision is to eventually be part of a mobile ecocaravan dreamteam of ecological builders, teachers, and designers, leading workshops and installations across the country and providing critical disaster relief to at-need communities.
