About Us

Pickards Mountain Eco-Institute (PMEI) is dedicated to healing the Human-Earth relationship through Earth Literacy and Local Economy. Our guiding principles derive from Thomas Berry, E.F. Schumacher, Richard Louv, and Joanna Macy, who seek to establish a “mutually enhancing relationship between humans and the Earth.” We share these principles and practices with children, teachers, policy-makers, clergy, and community organizers state-wide. Our educational farm and sustainability learning center reside on 70 acres in the Piedmont of North Carolina, eight miles west of Chapel Hill.
