The Unusual

Taos Earthships


Earthship Community

The Greater World project is designed to create an ideal condition from which a sustainable community can grow and flourish. Approximately 200 people will live in independent homes built using mostly recycled materials. These solar homes will be capable of growing food year round and will require little or no supplementary utilities.

The Greater World subdivision maintains a visitors center, 1.8 miles past the bridge, that’s the most unconventional model home and sales office you’ll ever visit.

You can take the self-guided Solar Survival Tour (575/751-0462,, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. daily, $5) of a basic Earthship and watch a video about the building process and the thinking behind the design. If you’re hooked, you can of course get details on buying a lot in the development or buying the plans to build your own place.

Or try before you buy: Three Earthships here are for rent nightly or weekly, starting at $135.
