Let’s go visit Earthship Biotecture in Taos! Pecos High School will take a tour of these “radically sustainable buildings” and learn about water harvesting, food production, contained water treatment, alternative energy sources, sustainable building practices, and more. What a great way to experience MESA’s theme for this year, “Sustaining our Future”!

Then on to our next stop…
Under the spectacular grounds of one of Taos’s finest hotels, El Monte Sagrado, is a LIVING MACHINE. Along with the Biolarium, Photovoltaic Solar Systems, Ground Loop Heat Exchange, and Stormwater Management Systems, the Living Machine has produced a green paradise full of water and beautiful plants for the hotel’s guests. We will learn more about this amazing technology and the growing fields of renewable energy use that will be with us in the future!
