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.
