About The Earthbuilders' Guild


TEG’s mission is to promote, preserve and expand the building methods of adobe, rammed earth, and compressed earth block construction.  Our organization is dedicated to the betterment and advancement of earthen construction of homes and commercial buildings, including the preservation and restoration of existing buildings.


The commitment of people in this industry stretches across family traditions, community heritage, meaningful work, environmental concerns, and the joy of working with the earth.  We want to ensure that we continue to make history through our building processes while improving them to create safe, comfortable, long-lasting structures.
