About Us

Launched in 2013, the Center for Sustainable Communities serves as an umbrella for existing programs and an opportunity for new initiatives.

Focusing primarily on four aspects of sustainability—energy and climate, food and wellness, education and outreach, and land stewardship—our mission is to be a catalyst for sustainable change.

Funding for the center comes from private donations, endowment earnings, and grants.

Mission Statement
