Ampersand Sustainable Living Center

Ampersand Sustainable Living Center
The Ampersand Sustainable Living Center is a small education institution established on the tenets of reducing fossil fuel dependency, rejuvenating the natural ecology and landscape, conserving and budgeting water, and facilitating growth and interdependency within the human community. Using only captured rainwater, Ampersand is able to grow a bounty of food for the center and for community members using soil restoration techniques that promotes both human and plant health.
