I have always been intrigued with the concept of earthship structures, and I very much enjoyed our short walking tour. Taking the time to watch the video and slide show made all the difference in understanding the movement. My son and I found it worth the small entry fee and hour it took to go through the visitor's center and... More

The homes in the community are off the grid and self-sustaining. The display area has a very thorough explanation of how the homes are built and it is a very interesting approach to building homes and a community.

I toured the model home and it was incredible and taunting. They demonstrate that we can all live free of the grid, with simple architectural design. The staff spent a lot of time answering my questions. The bookstore is fantastic! This place opens earlier than other attractions in Taos,so a great place to visit first thing in the morning.

I do have an interest in environmentally friendly homes, but the cost to walk through this place is not worth the time it takes to walk through. Very little information on display... reminded me more of a builder's sale office than a place of interest.

Enjoyed learning about the building process they use to produce the buildings. We were able to walk around and see how the process was applied to some buildings. On our way out a member of the staff said that he was able to give a tour and as a result we were able to go inside a building and see... More

Have heard a LOT about this initiative so was excited to experience it. The good news: lots of information and very good staff. Bad news: not much opportunity to see these houses in person.

Earth Buffered buildings with solar panels and rain water catching systems. Cannot go into a number of the areas and bottles in a wall somehow do not save much in my mind.

On our way to Santa Fe when we noticed a series of mounds in the fields adjacent to the highway. So, we pulled in to see what it was when we found out that these are green habitats. For a $5 fee per person, you can tour the sample home and some surrounding structures. This is truly 21st century living.... More
