  • Founded in 1969, the Ecology Center is a nonprofit organization located in Berkeley, California that focuses on improving the health and the environmental impacts of urban residents. We address critical issues through a model of education, demonstration, replication, and legislation. We envision a world where human activity nurtures the ecosystems that we all depend on — a world of “green” cities; empowered, resilient communities; zero waste and zero toxics; equal access to healthy food; sustainable resource use; and a safe and stable climate.

    The Ecology Center’s mission is to inspire and build a sustainable, healthy, and just future for the East Bay, California, and beyond. We transform the ideals of sustainability into everyday practice. We deliver information you can act on, infrastructure you can count on, and leadership for lasting change.

    Our services include farmers’ markets, produce stands, residential curbside recycling, classes and workshops, Youth Environmental Academy, help desk and hotline, book & DVD library and seed library, store for sustainable living, and a demonstration house and garden. We convene the Berkeley Food Policy Council, the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition, and the California Alliance of Farmers’ Markets. We also lead Market Match, an innovative nutrition incentive program that doubles the value of “food stamps” at farmers’ markets across California, and serve as the fiscal sponsor for a wide range of projects that align with our mission.

      The Ecology Center was the first to offer recycling centers in the East Bay and they have continued to expand their outreach towards sustainability and beyond! Their Eco-Gifts Shop, Library and Seed Library are highly valued resource for anyone wanting to learn more about how to connect and transition to “green” cities and communities.
