Environment Celebration Institute
The Environment Celebration Institute is a non-profit tax-exempt organization to further environmental awareness and appreciation of our natural wonders through research and education.
The ECI was founded by Dr. Carol Ann Rollins and features classes led by Dr. Elaine Ingham of the Soil Foodweb Inc., a business that grew out of her Oregon State University research program.
The primary objectives and purposes of this non-profit corporation are to (1) promote, develop and provide sustainable green practices and related educational materials for adults and children, (2) to promote respect for and appreciation of the natural environment whether in urban, rural, or wilderness areas, (3) to support scientific research for sustainable green practices for agriculture and home gardening, (4) to promote the sustainable use of our natural resources, and (5) to promote peace, harmony,and dignity among all living beings.
As part of the ECI, a center is being developed at the Celebration Farm, located at 13193 Oroville Quincy Highway, Berry Creek, CA where adults and children can learn about how the principles of Mother Nature can be applied to home gardens, landscaping, and agricultural growing systems.
The Center will ideally be situated in a diverse growing area, from old growth forests, deciduous forests, to meadows, and water sources for observation of natural growing systems and their requirements. The Center will be created as a model that will showcase sustainable practices.
Dr. Ingham’s “Life In The Soil” Workshops online are intensive courses to learn about the soil fooweb for farmers, landscapers, ranchers, creators and distributors of agricultural products, waste management professionals, soil and garden enthrusiasts of all types, and anyone who touches the earth. Simply put, this information needs to be central to any sustainable agriculture or land management practice.
Nature gives growers clues with respect to what is wrong, if the information is read properly. If the proper biology is not present, then the soil is sick. Put the beneficial organisms back into the soil. Make good compost, aerobic, high diversity, well-balanced, and add it to the soil. Or if applying a solid is too difficult, turn that compost into an extract or a tea. Compost, and therefore compost extract and compost tea are all aerobic materials. Aerobic organisms are what give the benefit to plants.
