The Earthship Greater World Community is a welcoming community founded with sustainable concepts and the following objectives: 
* To reduce the economic and institutional barriers between humans and their habitat.

* To reverse the overall negative effect that conventional human housing has on this planet.

* To create a less stressful plane of existence for humans in an effort to reduce the stress that they in turn place on the planet and each other.

* To interface economics and ecology in a way that immediately and tangibly affects current pressing problems with life on earth.

* To provide a direction for those who want to live in peace with each other and their environment.

* To empower individuals with the unarguable forces of nature as opposed to incapacitating them with the smothering forces of politics and bureaucracy.

* To find & distribute the appropriate soil from which the flower of humanity can blossom.

* To evolve humanity into an earthen harmony already exemplified by more evolved structures such as plants, animals and water.


The Greater World Earthship Community is the world’s largest off-grid, legal subdivision.  The community sits on 630 acres just 15 minutes northwest of Taos, New Mexico.  

The community is platted for 130 homes.  Community members own their land, fee simple.  There are approximately 60 homes in the community at the present time.  Members own lots which vary in size from .75 acres to 3 acres.  More than half of the total land is owned in common.  This 347 acre “green belt” is never to be built upon.  

The community is exclusively Earthship homes.  There is a Board of Directors who enforce the Land User’s Code.

Annual dues for the community are currently $150 for road maintenance and the community improvement fund.  Property taxes are assessed by Taos County.
