"The Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain is an Earth Sanctuary and Learning Community dedicated to Healing the Human-Earth Relationship. The educational farm and regenerative sustainability learning center reside on 38 acres in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The Eco-Institute offers Restorative Retreats for ChangeMakers, A Community Garden Cooperative that feeds 50 families, and a semester-long residential program for young adults called The Rising Earth Immersion. The Solar Moonshot Grant will allow for an additional solar array to be installed on the center building this October, doubling the solar electricity production and offsetting almost all of the electricity needs for The Eco-Institute!"
