Earthship School Project

Mar Chiquita, Argentina

March 1-28, 2018

We are pleased to present our fifth Earthship Academy Global Session.  The Earthship Academy offers extensive training in Earthship design principles, construction methods and philosophy.  The Earthship Academy has trained over 1500 students from around the world.  The Academy offers education for those who are excited to learn and expand the Earthship concept globally.

We will teach hands-on building techniques and Earthship design and systems classes while constructing a large Global Model Earthship that will be used as an elementary school for 100 local children.

Michael Reynolds will teach in the field and in the classroom along with 10 Earthship Academy instructors from Taos.  Classes will be taught in English and Spanish.  This session counts towards one of the three requirements for graduation from the Earthship Academy. 

There will be free camping available near the site with other inexpensive housing options nearby.  Students are responsible for their own transportation.  

Tuition for the course is $2550 USD for non-Latin American residents and $1550 USD for residents of South American, Central America and Mexico. (You need a national identification card from a Latin American country for this price.)  

We request a $550 deposit to reserve your space.  We will send you a PayPal invoice for your remaining balance.  Balances are due before the start of the project.
