The Philadelphia Earthship project is working build the first Earthship in a major U.S city, and making it the first urban Earthship in America. LoveLovingLove Inc., has partnered with Earthship360, Sustainable Solutions and local laborers to transform vacant land, into an educational facility with the capability of growing between 8,000-12,000 pounds of food, for the residents in a West Philadelphia food desert.
An Earthship is a building operating by these principles:
- Electricity: from sun and wind.
- Water: from rain and snow.
- Sewage:sanitary treatment.
- Heating & Cooling: from sun and earth.
- Food: grow inside and outside.
- Building with Natural and Recycled Materials.

Philadelphia Earthship Embassy
The Earthship will be an Embassy of Sustainability similar to the Educational Facility at Earthship HQ in Taos, New Mexico. The public can visit, learn, experience, garden, tour, watch movies, attend lectures, and attend the Earthship Academy to learn to build these homes.
