Background Information:

For a long time there has been a need for a year-round fully functional veterinary clinic in the Pueblo of Zuni to take care and reduce the number of stray animals, eliminate diseases through vaccines such as rabies that can have an effect on the human population, and ensure a peaceful relationship between human and animal.

The solution:
A fully self-sustainable Earthship that will drastically reduce utility bills and provide natural heating, cooling, water and electricity is the perfect solution for the resident doctors and the community and will showcase how a fully off-grid building can be as comfortable and sophisticated as a conventional clinic building.

What has been done so far: 
In June 2018, the first phase of the construction of the new Self Sustaining Veterinary Clinic took place. During three weeks, an amazing group of volunteers, crew and local participants worked hard to construct the main structure of the Earthship, pounding over 600 tires, framing up the roof and greenhouse structure, installing ventilation tubes and rain water catchment system, finishing the roof and burying the building and much more. We are incredibly thankful for the work that was done and the support received from all individuals and organizations involved.
