The Earthship allows no poverty. I repeat, THE EARTHSHIP ALLOWS NO POVERTY. It is a home that takes care of the people within it.
So, what does that mean? It means they should be built, one after the other, after the other. And construction should never stop. Right? How many times have you heard someone say they want to help the poor?

Work resumed in earnest today on the EVE Project following Michael Reynolds' return from the Earthship Project in Todos Santos, Mexico.

This is “biotecture” designed for a city in Turkey. There is a mile-long bike lane through the Commons. Not only is the guy riding through the Commons’ greenhouse, this buffer zone contains the facility’s sewage treatment, water catchment and food production. The outside climate gets tempered twice on the way into the private homes – once in the Commons and then in the personal greenhouses. With this much locally produced food, the scale of the corner store is redefined. Provisions for vegetables, bananas, fish and chickens are part of the design.
