Programs

North Country Sustainability Center started from a conversation with the Ashburnham Agricultural Commission. The need for an available commercial community kitchen combined with other hopes that people had for their community and the idea gelled to form NCSC, Inc.

Chartered in 2010, the initial group grew to a Board of Directors and expanded to a regional concept. Board members had long worried that people were losing traditional skills, and with the economic changes coming, they realized that such skills provided
stability in a unstable time. So NCSC went from an agricultural dream, to a diversified approach to rebuilding and celebrating our region by helping other people do the same thing in their homes and towns.


NCSC, Inc. received its 501 (c) (3) status in July, 2011, retroactive to November 2010.
