What we need to get started.

Land – Equipment – Materials – Volunteers – Money

Land – We need acreage

  • Flat Area – Outdoor sorting and storage of raw materials areas
  • Flat Area – Shop space for processing and manufacturing
  • Flat Area – Office and Living spaces
  • Access to HighSpeed Internet and utilities
  • Wishlist – southern facing slope for passive solar geothermal greenhouse

Camp Kalakala is a, “live here, work here” community for the disadvantaged.  All the building areas are born 100% accessible to wheelchairs and reactive to the needs of our community.  We will need space for working facilities, suitable travel paths, and tiny living spaces.  We plan to build each space using alternative building methods, geothermal, and passive solar solutions for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning using Michael Reynolds Earthship principles, predicated upon the idea of six human needs addressed through environmentally sustainable building designs:

  1. Energy: Thermal and/or solar heating and cooling, solar and wind electricity
  2. Garbage Management: Reuse and recycling built into construction and daily living
  3. Sewage Treatment: Self-contained sewage treatment and water recycling
  4. Shelter: Building with natural and recycled materials
  5. Clean Water: Water harvesting and long term storage
  6. Food: In-home organic food production capability

We are looking for anywhere from 5 to 80 acres.  We need to be closer to the Seattle metropolitan or Olympia.   We qualify for a VA loan and are willing to work deals for owner finance, partial or complete donations.   We are willing to consider long term lease/partial donations.

Donations of Land – While we are looking for certain things we are willing to accept any land that can be donated regardless the condition.  Donations to Camp Kalakala are tax-deductible as Camp Kalakala is nonprofit, 501(c)(3).

Equipment:

Shredder – Extruder – Sheet Press

Shredder – shreds plastic waste into smaller flakes ready to be recycled.  This is the Precious Plastic pro shredder.  The unit here is open-source design, parts can be sourced from local machine shops.  This double axis machine is able to shred up to 50 kg of plastic every hour depending on the desired flake size. Estimates for this type of shredder are $2500-$4000

Extruder – The Extrusion Pro extrudes recycled plastic into a mould.  These units vary greatly in cost based on features and utility cycles.  Heavy high-quality machines are needed as volume need increases.  Estimates for these types of extruders $3,000-$5,000

Sheet Press – The Sheetpress presses plastic into recycled sheets.‍  This type of machine can make multiple sheets (1×1 meters) per day recycling around 20 kg of plastic per sheet.  Estimates for this unit are between $1500-$3500
