Sustainable Living Centers
NCP's Sustainable Living Centers in Harrisonburg, Virginia and Starksboro, Vermont put our principles into practice. They model and advocate for energy efficiency, care for the local ecosystem, eco-building principles, sustainable transportation, engagement with their communities, and outreach to people on the margins of society. They also promote a values-based life connected to the land and to the local and global community as the best antidote to our consumer culture.
Visitors are welcome to stop and see—or to lend a hand in the gardens or on other projects. Students, adults and groups of any kind can come to work for a day, week or longer, as well as learn about what we’re doing and why. College students collaborate with our sites to do research and senior capstone projects. Longer-term workers receive a small stipend along with room and board.
