Cradled by the coast on one side and the chaparral on the other, The Ecology Center is a 28-acre certified regenerative organic farm (one of the few left in the county) and community hub. Over the course of twelve years, and with a village of staff and volunteers, Founder and Executive Director Evan Marks transitioned The Ecology Center from a one-acre plot into its current 28-acres and a thriving marketplace for regeneratively organic grown flowers, vegetables, fruit, and plants. Year-round, Southern California visitors can enjoy ecological experiences at The Ecology Center, from field trips to culinary adventures, a robust farm stand, and a CSA program now serving the greater region. Through its Nourishing Neighbors initiative, The Ecology Center gives back 20% of what it grows to feed local food-insecure community members, with the goal of nourishing 750 families per week. Additional information and updates can be found on The Ecology Center’s website and on Instagram.

The Ecology Center seeks to bring all members of the community together in a solutions-based educational setting to create a healthy and abundant future for all of Orange County. The Center highlights empowering and cutting-edge environmental perspectives that can be applied to the way we live our lives, making it possible for us to coexist with a thriving environment.

The Farm Store is now open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. A space for all to join together and celebrate, while empowering a regenerative local economy.

The Farm Stand will be closed every Tuesday and Thursday until further notice due to COVID-19 alerts
