We are a 1-acre site composed of our headquarters and general store in the historic Congdon Farmhouse (built in 1878), plus the surrounding learning landscapes and The Eco-Labs of Food, Water, Energy, Waste, and Shelter.
Overall we believe the world we live in is facing radical change – and our aim is to help find positive futures in the face of that change. To get in shape for the challenges of the future, we need a culture that knows how to sustain the things that sustain us and at the same time nurtures creativity, imagination and adaptability.
The Ecology Center is founded on the principle that each person can make a difference toward a sustainable future. Individual actions do transform the community, elevating the health of our environment and ecosystems. Through basic action, we can create a diverse, safe, and healthy world with clean air, water, and power for ours and future generations.
