The Ecology School transforms how people think about science, food, the environment, and themselves through joyful, hands-on learning for all ages.


 At The Ecology School, we study the relationships that all living organisms have with one another and with our shared environment. We explore ways that we, as humans, can build communities that sustain the very ecosystems that in turn sustain us.

We approach the science of ecology through wide-eyed, hands-on exploration of the ecosystems outside our door, making nature’s lessons memorable with play, humor, and games, and applicable with real life models of sustainable farming and living.
