During the summer of 2019, CEI purchased a 6.4 acre organic farm in our hometown of Columbia, Maryland. We have protected this unique property from being developed, are preserving and restoring the farm, and will be creating a Community Ecology Center where people can come to learn through hands on experiences about how they can have happier, healthier, more connected and sustainable lives! Please help us to raise the funds needed to transform this "diamond in the rough" into an inspiring, innovative, community education center!
This project will be of particular interest for those who want to support:
Small, local, community ecology centers have the power to help transform communities - caring for the earth and bringing people together with a sense of hope and purpose for the future. As we create this Community Ecology Center at Freetown Farm we will be developing videos, articles, tools, and other resources about how communities around the country and world can create their own ecology centers in a way that strengthens their local resilience.
Check out the press about this project!
If you are local and want to schedule a visit to tour or volunteer at the farm please email firstname.lastname@example.org or check the opportunities at www.facebook.com/communityecologyinstitute/.
The farm address is 8000 Harriet Tubman Ln, Columbia, MD 21044.
