Earthships provide security in economically unsecure times.

Earthships cost about the same as a conventional home, but a conventional home does not come with all the electricity and water you will use. A conventional home is bad for the planet, is not strong and uses materials that require a lot of fossil fuels to manufacture and get to your building site.

Earthship “Build” Opportunities

Earthship “Builds” are opportunities to work side by side with our crew in locations all over the globe. Most builds will take an Earthship from to start to finish. Interns participating in these builds pay a registration fee and are responsible for their own accommodations, food and travel. Lunch is provided. Build Opportunities are posted on the front page of this site as they become available.


Earthship Intern Program

The Earthship Intern Program is a month long live/work/learn experience at our headquarters in Taos, New Mexico. Participants will live in an Earthship and work up to five days per week on Earthship projects in the Greater World Community.
