is an evolving vegan homestead and education center located near
State College, PA. We seek to build a more peaceful and
sustainable world through our living example and through
education about the importance of a vegan diet, the
benefits of veganic gardening, and empowering others along
the path to making the transition. Our current activities focus
on home-based food production including vegetables, fruits,
nuts, mushrooms, and maple syrup. We are happy to host visitors,
give tours, and work with small groups to host educational
workshops centered on vegan living and eating.
