We are thrilled to announce our second ever Earthship Academy Global Session. The Earthship Academy offers extensive training in Earthship design principles, construction methods and philosophy.
We will teach hands-on building techniques and Earthship design and systems classes while constructing a 2 classrooms of an 8 classroom Earthship flower design building. This structure is going to be a music school for local children. A non-profit group based on Easter Island is currently fundraising for the materials for the project.
This year the course was offered for the first time during the Spring Semester. The students spent half the time in the classroom learning about Earthship design principles and systems and half the time doing guided hands-on work in the field, pounding tires, mud plastering, building bottle brick walls etc... We are thrilled to be partnering with UNM Taos to bring Earthships into an accredited college curriculum.
Earthship Biotecture joined by a team of local, national and international volunteers has built what we call the “Windship” Earthship design in the Philippines. The Windship has evolved from the Simple Survival Earthship design and functions to serve as an aerodynamic storm shelter and school building for a community outside of Tacloban in Leyte Island
