Healing the Human-Earth Relationship

The Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain is dedicated to healing the Human-Earth relationship. Our educational farm and regenerative sustainability learning center reside on 38 acres in the Piedmont of North Carolina, eight miles west of Chapel Hill.


As the world grows more and more out of balance, we urgently need to regain a relationship with the planet based upon the understanding of the world as a sacred and living whole, and to reclaim a consciousness that is centered in that understanding. Only if we redeem the problem at the root can we hope to heal and come back into balance with our environment.
— Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee, Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth
