Once again, I made the trek to Earthship Biotecture. In 5 days, I traveled by train to Tacoma, Washington, sat in a Prius packed with 4 other people, we traveled crossed six states to visit and stay at the Greater World Community in New Mexico to learn about the building and functions of an Earthship.
A passive solar home-made of natural and recycled materials.
Thermal mass construction for temperature stabilization.
Renewable energy & integrated water systems make the Earthship an off-grid home with little to no utility bills.
EARTHSHIP – Weird name but GREAT concept.
This year Earthship Seattle rented 4 Earthships and one of the first home built-in the community, the Phoenix. The Phoenix is approximately 30 years old and it has an amazing greenhouse. All of the plants were full-grown and flourishing. It felt like I was standing in a rain forest. The growing vegetation were pineapple, banana, and grapes along with various herbs, edible flowers and other plants. Seriously, birds were singing and the sound of water flowing from the 2 ponds filled with fish. I even saw a turtle. These homes are so COOL! The pictures below are from the 2016 visit.
To Prepare = Peace of Mind
