EBANZ is committed to promoting the art and science of earth building.

EBANZ is a network of  volunteers  interested in promoting environmentally friendly, sustainable building, with a focus on earth as a construction material. EBANZ publishes a bi-monthly magazine,  lobbies government organisations, and organises an annual conference and regional events.

The Quarry Arts Centre was the birthplace of EBANZ. The Quarry has long been a seed bed for the modern earth building. The first NZ earthbuilding conference was held in the Quarry, drawing such stalwarts as Richard and Bella Walker from Nelson. The logo was designed by Ron de Rooy founder of Te Kowhai Print Trust where the first EBANZ magazines were produced.
