Earthship Class for College Credit at UNM Taos

This Spring semester the UNM Green Technologies program will be offering Intro to Earthship Biotecture as one of their electives to fulfill the sustainability credit.  Phil Basehart, who has worked for Earthship Biotecture for over 20 years, will be the lead instructor.  Guest instructors will include Michael Reynolds and Earthship systems specialists from our plumbing and electrical staff.  Students will tour Earthships, take classes on Earthship design principles and spend time on construction sites learning how to pound tires, lay cans and bottles and plaster with adobe.  We are excited to start this partnership with UNM and hope it paves the way for Earthship concepts to enter the curriculum at the college level here in New Mexico and around the country and world.

We’re in it together

BUILDING a house is a big job.

With this in mind, Nimbin-based company Terraeden Biotecture has come up with a solution to make building a home easier – get as many people as possible to help.

The company’s unique attitude toward building sees participants physically build an “Earthship” home through community workshops.

Over the course of the build, participants learn practical skills and theory about things such as permaculture and law.

Terraeden design facilitator Duuvy Jester said he could come up with a design for any home based on a client’s budget.

“Not everyone can afford the labour costs, so the people who are coming to do the build get a reasonably priced education that gives them real skills and the people building the house get their labour cost cut out,” Mr Jester said. Read More

Why Are We Doing This?

Cambodia is a very poor country, and it needs innovative methods of creating a safe and secure places to live, with the minimum amount of external materials, to the lowest possible cost. As we’ve learned the people of Cambodia are very creative, and adaptive to new ideas, and we feel we can inspire change by inviting them to learn with us.

When?
We are starting this project at early to mid January 2014, and should be running for about a month or so.

About what we’re looking for

We are looking for people interested in new ways of thinking, earthship’s and permaculture, and who are not shy of a hard days work! The temperature here in January will be between 26° and 34° Celsius, and we’ll be working about 6 hours a day. The work will be quite hands on. Please contact or visit us to join in the build! We will take on about 10 volunteers, and we will prioritise people who can stay the duration of the build. Read More

Organic Food Harvest in Earthship Visitor Center

“There is an ample amount of food being produced in the Earthship Visitors Center, at Earthship HQ, near Taos, New Mexico, during December. Healthy organic salads are being enjoyed every week by the employees of the Visitors Center, the Earthship Academy Office and the Earthship Biotecture Main Office.
These are the ingredients we used in the salad we made today. It was so incredible, so full of life force! Thank you for Earthships!”
