We are happy to announce the construction of a fully self sustainable Earthship veterinary clinic in partnership with the Zuni Environmental Protection Program in Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico in June 2018!
For a long time there has been a need for a year-round fully functional veterinary clinic in the Pueblo of Zuni to take care and reduce the number of stray animals, eliminate diseases through vaccines such as rabies that can have an effect on the human population, and ensure a peaceful relationship between human and animal.
A fully self-sustainable Earthship that will drastically reduce utility bills and provide natural heating, cooling, water and electricity is the perfect solution for the resident doctors and the community and will showcase how a fully off-grid building can be as comfortable and sophisticated as a conventional clinic building.
We need your help to make this project happen! Please see below different ways of supporting this project:
