PLACE for Sustainable Living

We are developing a public serving, experiential learning center to showcase and foster sustainable living practices, urban homesteading, community resiliency & preparedness, social justice and artistic expression. We will incubate this local sustainability hub to allow people to see solutions in practice and gain access to the knowledge and resources to empower them to take action in their own lives, neighborhoods, towns, cities, and bio-regions. We hope to grow this green center model into communities across the world through the integration with community centers, schools, park & recreation facilities and other local organizations.

We are a public-serving, experiential learning center to showcase and foster sustainable living practices, urban homesteading, community resiliency & preparedness, social justice and artistic expression.
