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. READ MORE »

Desert Solitaire | Community As Sacred Geometry

The expectations I brought with me to Earthship Biotecture were that I would walk away with experiences, skills, new friends, and knew that I would have no idea as to how this journey would affect my life. My goal was to set out to do the best I could, and to see what nourishes me.

Bomber, bro!

Well… week 3 is in the books.  It was a very productive week for the Academy.  On top of the construction work we accomplished this week, we also had our first set of labs.  In the labs, we got to build the WOM (water organizing module) and POM (power organizing module) from scratch with the help of Earthship crew specialists guiding us along the way.

Academy week 3 Valves

My first blog post is starting a little late.  I’ll do my best to catch you guys up to date.  It’s week 3 and we’ve already progressed a ton in terms of classroom education, our build in the Greater World Community (they call it GDub), and the friendships within the Academy and crew.  Heeeerewego!  

I gotta say it was a tough day (Ice Cube style). We had class in the morning and construction work in the afternoon.  It got a lil’ toasty out on the mesa.
