Sustainable Education Lab
Our Sustainable Education Lab (SEL) serves as the YEA Corps office and sustainability lab. Here we develop curriculum; construct, test and perfect our sustainable systems; and gather weekly to train and grow our team. The SEL serves as a staging site to serve all of our program partners. Finally, the SEL is also an urban agricultural education center where others working for environmental justice can gather.
Set up an appointment to visit. Our space is available for event hosting to environmental and urban agriculture groups at competitive rates.
