The Ecology Center is an ambitious project that humbly seeks to provide a blueprint for living abundantly on planet Earth – to explore what it looks, tastes, and feels like when humans collaborate towards a healthy future for all.

Our non-profit organization models creative solutions for thriving on planet Earth. We believe everyone should have access to the tools, knowledge, and skills that promote healthy communities in the 21st century.

The Ecology Center’s headquarters is located in the historic Congdon Farmhouse and Kinosihita Farm in San Juan Capistrano, CA.

From an empty dirt lot, we have created an ecological oasis. Our home is a model for how every home can be reimagined and every space revived.

Having witnessed more than 130 years of social, agricultural, and environmental change, the Congdon House is the perfect venue for an exploration of the links between past, present, and future. At the same time, as one of the oldest standing embodiments of the past, it serves to remind us that we must act today to rejuvenate the environment for the generations to follow.
