As of May 6th, our campus is open! But we still need to complete the final phase of civil improvements. This requires us to raise an additional $65k by the end of October. You can read all the details here Thank you for your support!

HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS

As an educational resource and non-profit, CalEarth supports most of its operating costs through our online courses and workshops. But as we face new challenges to bring SuperAdobe mainstream, we need additional help:

We were able to complete the first phase of our improvements and reopen the campus on May 6, 2019. However we still need to raise approximately $35,000 for the remaining improvements by October 2019.  We also have plans to expand the campus in future phases to include additional student housing and classrooms.

The Future of SuperAdobe

ICC Testing and SuperAdobe Permitting

After years of permitting SuperAdobe structures, the San Bernadino County Buildings Department has requested new testing by the ICC (International Code Council) Evaluation Service before approving any new SuperAdobe structures. This means you cannot legally build with SuperAdobe in San Bernadino county at this time. We are currently working with the ICC and the county to arrange testing of our structures. We estimate the cost will be $30,000-$40,000 to complete the process.
