In September 2017, Hurricane Maria caused catastrophic damage and a major humanitarian crisis on the island of Puerto Rico.
Since then, Biotecture Planet Earth has been finding ways of supporting a demonstration project of a sustainable and hurricane resistant Earthship in Puerto Rico, with no government or corporate support.
PHASE 1 – February 2018: Construction of two Earthship structures with 70 international and local volunteers, knowledge transfer to encourage continuation of project and networking with Puerto Rico authorities. Phase 1 was made possible by donations and support of a large amount of individuals and organizations. Thank you!
PHASE 2 – June 2018: Integration of systems and continuation of the construction of the Puerto Rico Earthship school / community center. Click here to view the video summary of Phase 2.
PHASE 3 – January 2019: Click here to view the summary of Phase 3.
PHASE 4 – 17-29 July 2019: Be a part of our next hit in Puerto Rico! Click here to find out more!
Earthships create self-reliance and independence by integrating six basic principles and the aim is to train locals in Puerto Rico to be able to build these houses themselves and in a cost-effective way. Earthships have been built on an international basis for over 45 years by Earthship Biotecture, making the organization a pioneer in the world of self-sustainable home construction.
