About Us

We envision a world that cares for the Earth and its people, is equitable, and exists within the limits of the ecosystems that provide for our needs. We understand that fostering environmental literacy will help us to realize that vision. Ecological literacy and having a connection to place will be key components to creating a sustainable future for all. There are many access points to addressing a changing climate, to increasing academic achievement, and improving the lives of children and families. We have chosen education as our focal point because we believe that education is the means by which we pass culture from one generation to the next. 


We are a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering learners of all ages to leave our Earth a little better than we found it. 

"Education is the means whereby we pass on our culture from one generation to the next."

A holistic learning experience using the native forest and a permaculture subsistence farm as our classrooms and nature as our teacher for children 6-12.
