The Corner Cottage was built in 2007 and was the first Earthship to feature a second greenhouse along the entire front face.  The floor plan of the Corner Cottage was similar to a two bedroom Packaged Earthship but with the continuous angled front face and gray water planters added in front.  Corner Cottage was […]

Earthship Aquaponic Prototype

Four months after filling the pond with water, we have a thriving vegetable and soon, fish producing Aquaponic System in the Towers Earthship at Eathship Biotecture, Taos, NM. For those of you who initially thought that the pond looked like a “kiddy pool” and not really well integrated, take another look. It is beautiful, peaceful and serene, and producing food.

It is a joy to be working with this Aquaponic Prototype every day, as it not only is producing food, but is also aesthetically very pleasing, creating a beautiful serene atmosphere in the Towers greenhouse, making my work there a meditative experience every morning. I feel very blessed and wish I could spend all day there!

EB Academy Works on Local Humanitarian Effort

   

 

    Academy 2014 – Session 2

There have been several hits on a Global Model Earthship being built for a Taos family who was displaced after losing their home in Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Last year, we had 35 students and several crew members begin the tire pounding and within a week’s time were able to complete the 9 courses of the main structural tire wall. The Bilal family has been in Taos since that time and have been the focus of our local humanitarian effort.

Since last spring, Earthship Biotecture has donated time and labor working with our interns, Academy students and various high school groups towards enclosing and eventually finishing the Bilal family’s Earthship. Several groups have worked with us over the year to pack out the back tire wall creating more support and preparing for the roof to go on. […]

First Earthship grown Papayas harvested on this snowy Fall day of October 16 th 2013.

Today is a another good day in the realm of Earthship Food Production.

We woke up to 2 inches of snow today, with outside temperatures around 35 degrees F, this morning.

I picked the first Earthship grown Papaya, looking out the front face of our office, at the earth berms of the Survival Pods in front of us, covered in a light dusting of snow. In my hand I held the first succulent, sweet smelling papaya, that I had grown from seed in our office at Earthship Headquarters, on the Greater World Community, Taos, New Mexico. […]
