Experimental Living on the Edge of the Taos Desert: Mabel Dodge Lujan, D. H. Lawrence, and the Earthships of Northern New Mexico Limited to 20 people Since the late 1880s, northern New Mexico has been a place of starting over. But it really was in the early decades of the twentieth century, as people fled the collapse of modernity and the failure of progress in the wake of the Great War, that it came into its own as a refuge. Seeking solace in the wide-open possibilities of the Taos desert, communities of reimagining blossomed. To register for this field trip, please click here.
