Striving for a culture that gives more than it takes.

The Ecology Center provides a blueprint for living abundantly on Planet Earth to explore what it looks, tastes, and feels like when humans live in harmony with nature and one another.

The Ecology Center models a healthy future for all.

GROW EAT MAKE

THE THREE CORE PILLARS OF OUR MODERN VILLAGE.

Our approach is holistic – to incubate the next generation of agricultural, culinary, and educational leaders – while creating a vibrant community resource and gathering place to inspire all.

We are staffed and supported by the leaders in our field, and we will continue to provide access to underserved groups that typically miss out on these types of educational opportunities.

CHANGE BEGINS IN OUR BACKYARD

Southern California once served as the bread and fruit basket of our nation, but today The Ecology Center is one of the only organic farms left in the county.

We have the rare opportunity to steward this unique fertile farmland by utilizing our seasoned skills in instructional and experiential design. Our aim is to not only shift culture and behavior, but also to inspire and set an example for entrepreneurs and organizations looking to develop similar projects within the region and beyond.

Mentorship is at the heart of our work.

The farm has been envisioned and designed as a living system, classroom, and laboratory for tomorrow’s leaders.

Here, we will share skills, perspectives, and experiences that all visitors can use to make a difference in their own lives, educations and professions. Some will dive deeper to become true change- makers and engaged advocates for our healthy future.

Towards this goal The Ecology Center will offer apprenticeships designed for intense vocational training with the focus to expand local food production throughout southern California. To ensure diversity and more systemic impact across the region, scholarships will provide access for underserved candidates who are often left behind.

Our model for abundance and excellence.

We are building a farm and community center that will promote the values and share the knowledge needed for a healthy future. We will welcome visitors every day into our classrooms for real-world educational experiences that will enable all of us to be more innovative, entrepreneurial, and better connected to the greater community and environment. Our multi-dimensional training will combine ecologically focused food production with food preparation and service, science, education and related arts.
