New Community Project - Jump right in!

Living more sustainably with the earth and more fairly with its people—that's the mission of the New Community Project. Join us as we provide resources that challenge us, experiences that change us, and a community that gives us hope.


Our work includes:

  • Learning Tours to the Arctic, Amazon, Africa, Southeast Asia —places where the earth and our neighbors are struggling
  • a Sustainable Living Homestead that combines organic gardening and programs to undo global warming with outreach to those at the margins of the community
  • speakers and workshop leaders for schools, colleges, congregations, youth events, and other gatherings
  • Solidarity Workers in other countries and cultures
  • a variety of engaging print and web-based resources
  • a support network for like-minded souls, with a special interest in empowering youth and young adults
