Help create a more beautiful world...

Support the Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain.

The Eco-Institute is a Sustainability Center located in the Piedmont of North Carolina, near Chapel Hill. We are a teaching/learning site for sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, and herbal medicine. We host a vibrant residential and guest fellowship program year-round. Fellows assist with the farm, educational workshops, school visits, and community events. Come taste our farm, share your ideas, and stay awhile.

Would you enjoy donating carpentry or culinary skills?
Or would you like to help on one of our volunteer workdays?

Your support allows Pickards Mountain Eco-Institute to continue to offer educational programs for schoolchildren, sustainability workshops, community gatherings, summer camps, and internships/fellowships for young adults in the spirit of re-establishing a mutually enhancing human-earth relationship.
