Sustainable Living Centers
NCP's Sustainable Living Centers in Harrisonburg, Virginia and Starksboro, Vermont put our principles into practice. They model, teach and advocate for energy efficiency, eco-building principles, sustainable transportation, engagement with their communities, and outreach to people on the margins of society. They also promote a spiritually-grounded life connected 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. School, club and church groups come to work as well as learn about what we’re doing and why. College students collaborate with our sites to do volunteer work, research and senior capstone projects. Interns and college Summer Service Workers stay for up to a couple months, and receive room & board. Apprentices are longer-term workers who make a commitment for a year or more, and they receive a small stipend along with room and board.
