We conserve over 1600 acres of Southern Appalachian mountain forest as an ecological sanctuary and wildlife habitat preserve.
Long Branch is about CEDAR: Conservation, Earth Honoring Education, Ecology, Energy, Design, Demonstration, Advocacy, Research, and Restoration. We honor the traditional wisdom and healing traditions of indigenous peoples, and seek to reconnect 2-leggeds with Sacred Life in Harmony with Nature. We conserve over 1600 acres of Southern Appalachian mountain forest as an ecological sanctuary and wildlife habitat preserve. Several acres are managed in a Permaculture design of small scale organic gardens, crops, berries, orchards, and rainbow trout aquaculture in an integrated edible landscape. We design and build passive solar buildings, greenhouses, hot water systems, solar cookers, and micro-hydropower systems. Our solar composting toilets process pookie into premier pathogen-free soil amendment! Sustainability is growing
