Our center continues to evolve in living our mission of environmental education and care of Earth in the context of community, contemplation, creativity, and cultivation.
Since our beginning in 2004, with the help and inspiration of many people, we have met many of our goals related to green, sustainable living. We built a green addition to the 1912 farmhouse, assembled a green house, constructed our Education Center, built a beautiful hermitage, remodeled the pig barn into a honey house, and created a tree house. Renewable energy features include solar hot water, solar electric, geo-thermal heating and cooling, and wind electric from our 10Kw wind turbine. We offer tours, field trips, ecology camps and have over 6,000 visits annually.
