EVE is a planned high-density community where 25 people will live, work and grow their own food. Beyond Earthship solutions to power, water, sewage, and comfort, the EVE project addresses economics. This project is located on the world’s first Sustainable Development Testing Site.
Michael Reynolds’ fight to get the law for this site passed is the central story of the documentary Garbage Warrior.
On this test site Earthship Biotecture is able to experiment with methods of sustainable living without having to go through the conventional permitting process. This helps evolve systems more rapidly while bringing down costs.
