Our Mission

To advance and promote earthen construction

Our Vision

Earthen construction is an established, mainstream building technology

Welcome to
Earthen Construction Initiative!

Thanks to the support of members like you, we can continue our mission to advance and promote earthen construction.

Since our founding in early 2016, ECI has been working to put in place an administrative foundation and develop our mission and vision.

A few of our accomplishments in 2016-2017 include:

  • Obtained 501(c)(3) and state tax exempt status;
  • Hosted a strategic planning session and developed a strategic plan;
  • Sponsored EarthUSA 2015 conference in Santa Fe and SolarFest San Antonio;
  • Presented an earthen construction education unit and earth block demonstration at the American Institute of Architects San Antonio in cooperation with San Antonio Young Architects.

With your help, we’ll continue to expand our efforts in outreach, education, and research to help bring earthen construction into the mainstream. We welcome your participation, your ideas, and your support.
