Hi there! Erik here. I am the founder of a non-profit organization founded with the purpose of teaching and researching sustainable living practices.
I am an engineer and an Earth-architect, a graduate and former faculty of Nader Khalili’s CalEarth Institute. I was the first person to fully design and get permitted a Superadobe-Earthship structure in a major US city (Las Vegas) back in 2014. In 2016, we purchased 2.5 acres of land in the California Mojave Desert, and since then we have been working hard to create Gaia Earthen Technologies Polytechnic's first campus, Tranqvillium.
We love to teach and learn new skills related to sustainable living, and you will have the opportunity to contribute to the creation of a revolutionary, money-free egalitarian-style community. If you're interested in this type of living, come join us and become a part of the community.
We enjoy hosting, getting to know people, making them feel like this place is home. We are passionate about the work we do in sustainable living and sustainable building. We love to explore the wild places around us by hiking, mountain climbing, rock climbing, snowboarding, and swimming. We'd love to show you around the beautiful desert we live in!
