Training and Volunteering in NZ


The best way to find out about how to build your own Earthship is to learn by doing.  On our news and events page we will post opportunities for hands-on practical learning about Earthship construction  in NZ.  Contact us at if you would like to add information to this page.



Waiheke Earthship Internship

Planning for the Earthship build project in Onetangi Waiheke Island is well underway, however extensive delays in the design phase in order to comply with code has delayed the original scheduled start date of Feb 2014.  No date will rescheduled until consent has been granted. At that time, there may be opportunity for up to fifty interns to be selected to work on the project.  Sponsorship is being sought to be fund a small number of selected interns to attend the US Earthship Academy to undergo further training and obtain a qualification from Earthship Biotecture.

The design and building consent process is ongoing and a more detailed description of this opportunity and an application process will be posted as soon as the liklihood of consent has been ascertained.  Inquiries:  Phone 027 281 5022
