About Earthship Brighton

Earthship Brighton was the Low Carbon Trust's first project and was the first Earthship to be built in England.

Earthship Brighton is an off-grid building that heats, cools, powers itself from the sun, harvests it's water from the sky and treats it's wastewater onsite using plants.

To find out more about Earthship Brighton, we offer tours and training courses on how to build an earthship.  We have a new Self-building an Earthship online course for people to learn remotely.

The project was built as a community centre for use by Stanmer Organics, a Soil Association accredited site in Brighton.

This pioneering demonstration project has evolved over the last ten years, providing jobs for local workers and enabling people to come and experience a cutting edge eco-build and be inspired to respond to climate change in their own ways back at home and work.

The aims of the Earthship Brighton project were to deliver a sustainable community centre in response to a genuine local need, change values in the construction industry and inspire positive action in individuals to generate environmental change through modifying people's behaviour to less carbon intensive lifestyles.

Throughout the project the focus has been spreading a positive message of climate change education and helping people to modify their behaviour to live with a lighter carbon footprint.
