The Greater World Earthship Community is the world’s first Earthship subdivision. Located 15 minutes from historic Taos, New Mexico, the Greater World Community is 634 acres of rolling mesa with great views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the town of Taos. Two and a half miles of the community front New Mexico State Highway 64 W. Lots of varying sizes are available in all phases of this development.

The Gravel Pit Reclamation Project (AKA Lemuria) in the Greater World Community is located in the northeastern portion of the subdivision. By combining the Earthship’s innovative water-catch-and-reuse systems with permaculture techniques to trap and direct surface-water runoff, the Gravel Pit Reclamation Project will demonstrate how to rejuvenate and reclaim a formerly worthless piece of discarded land.
