Mission

Our mission is to provide resources and engaging activities that emphasize interconnectedness and empower people to better care for themselves, the planet, and all of its inhabitants.

  • Our goal is to present humane education topics such as healthy eating, environmental protection, animal rights, social justice issues, and the gift economy to learners of all ages in the city of Charlottesville and surrounding Central Virginia area.  
  • The workshops, presentations, and field trips we organize encourage critical thinking skills and challenge participants to take responsibility for how their everyday choices impact others.  
  • Our aim is to help people develop into conscious consumers and compassionate citizens who are excited about learning and actively participate in creating a better world for all.
