Earthship Biotecture-Taos, NM

This was my first natural building internship. I had a wonderful experience here, partially because the other interns were so awesome, and also because what we were doing was so fun. The experience was a lot what you made of it because you weren't really directed what to do, you just had to keep asking. It was all very hands on building, continuing onto an Earthship that was already started. I packed tires, did a lot of shoveling, learned about roofing, and helped with a bottle wall. I learned a lot about basic construction, however if you are genuinely interested in building your own Earthship I would definitely say that doing the academy would be more beneficial than just the internship. The academy is more classwork and really understanding how to build an Earthship from start to finish. However, it is quite pricey. Overall I would say this was a really great learning experience and I made a lot of awesome friends. Unfortunately this is not free, but I absolutely recommend it to anyone who has the money for it. The internship cost $400 and I think was well worth the cost!
