Guided Earthship Tours

In addition to the self guided tour that goes through our Earthship Visitor Center daily, we also have  2 kinds of guided tours.

Guided tours are generally reserved for groups of 10 or more, however, we can accommodate a smaller group for a minimum of $100.

Admittance to the building which is very similar to a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, packaged Earthship.  The floor plan of the building has been altered, and is set up like a gallery.  There is a 15 minute video and a 45 minute slideshow, along with tons of literature, and photos.  There is also a gift shop and various pathways outside for you to walk and see the exteriors of some of the other structures in the immediate area. One of our friendly staff members will be available to guide your group through this facility and answer all of your questions:) […]

Out Of The Blue: Exclusive Behind The Scenes & Earthship Video

Take a look inside Earthship, a sustainable and self-contained green building in Taos, New Mexico and check out exclusive behind the scenes photos of our latest collection, Out Of The Blue.

One of the biggest factors in planning a shoot is finding a location that complements the story and clothing. For the Out of the Blue homepage we knew New Mexico would be the perfect backdrop; from white sands, to endless shades of green fields, red earth and deep blue skies, this state has so much to offer us.

Waybee Updates

This beautifully finished global model Earthship called Waybee had its first tire pounded by the Earthship Academy students in March of 2014.

Five Academy sessions were dedicated to finish this building. The students built it themselves with the help of our talented crew. From door to doorknob, they worked at least 5 days a week for four weeks in full dedication to bring it to life.

One of the most amazing aspects of this field is seeing the skeleton of your work turn into a home that takes care of the people who will be occupying it. […]
