exteriorThough we were hoping to purchase this as the home for the NCSC Hearth, as luck would have it, the Colomba Family purchased it. They have agreed to let use parts of the church for exhibits, performances, meetings and more. Thank you so much!
We are also looking at another site in Gardner for the Agriculture/Animal/Practical Arts Aspect of the NCSC.
Stay tuned for more information!

This is the Mill that we want to fix. To learn
more about it, please visit Gardner,
or Growing Future.

North Country Sustainability Center, Inc. is an ambitious
project that can demonstrate sustainability in rural and small town areas.
By asking ourselves "What is Sustainabiilty," we heard the wisdom of a 2nd grader who answered with "Whatever it takes to keep living here." That is the best definition we've ever heard, and that
is how we've developed our plan.

What needs to be done?
What do we have to work with?
How can the most people benefit?

And NCSC was born! Help us grow this
into a reality, and we'll help others do the same in their own regions.
