The Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain is dedicated to healing the Human-Earth relationship. Our educational farm and regenerative learning center offers a unique community residential program for young adults, healing retreats for non-profit leaders and activists, community gatherings and celebrations, workshops and courses.

Apply to the Odyssey Fellowship Program today, where young adults are redefining the collective story of our time. 


Are you feeling disconnected from your spirit, from the spirit of community, and from the spirit of Earth? 

Do you find yourself dreaming of the possibilities of a new world? 

Are you ready to step into your fullest expression and play your role in the co-creation of that world?

The Odyssey Fellowship Program is a ten week residential immersion for people in their Odyssey Years of life, or the wandering time between adolescence and adulthood, that offers foundational permaculture understandings, skills, and inner development- cultivating one’s unique gifts and passions to be offered towards the healing of our world.

The goal of this program is to cultivate an authentic, dedicated, growing community of young adult leaders who hold a vision of a future that is ecologically resilient, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling for all beings.
