The Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain is a learning community, Earth sanctuary, and permaculture farm located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and established in 2005. Since 2013, we've been running a residential program (The Rising Earth Immersion) for young adults between 18-28 who are concerned about our world’s changing climate and ready to take action for a sustainable and just future.
The Eco-Institute runs on solar power. We grow organic food and herbal medicines. We offer permaculture education, workshops in sustainability topics, study groups, a Garden Cooperative, community resilience programs, seasonal celebrations, and a myriad of Earth-healing workshops. Through all that we offer, we are learning to embody the truth that we are not separate—from the Earth or from each other—and that all of our actions have implications for the rest of the community of Life.
