Earthship Academy Global Session

Ushuaia, Argentina
January 6-31, 2014

We are pleased to announce the very first Earthship Academy Global Session.  The Earthship Academy offers extensive training in Earthship design principles, construction methods and philosophy.  The Earthship Academy has trained over 200 students from around the world.  We are building an Earthship Army and the Academy offers education for those who are excited to learn and expand the Earthship concept globally.  This is the first time we are offering a session outside our headquarters in Taos, New Mexico.

We will teach hands-on building techniques while constructing a 2U Simple Survival Earthship.  This structure is going to be a public art project.  The space will be an educational sculpture used to demonstrate Earthship technology while helping to clean up the coastline by using trash in the construction process. 

Classes will be taught in English and Spanish.  The course would be one month long and the tuition would be $1500 USD.  We request a $500 deposit to secure your place in the program with the balance of tuition due before November 15, 2013.  Michael Reynolds will teach in the field and in the classroom along with 5 Earthship Academy instructors from Taos and 3 bilingual Earthship Academy students from Argentina.

There will be camping available near the site.  Students are responsible for theirown transportation and food.
