At Abundance, we aim to be a hub of community resilience in central North Carolina, sourcing out the abundant local opportunities for us all to live and act sustainably, and bringing people together to exchange ideas and build the communities we want to live in.
We believe that a community that takes care of the environment it depends on, and that provides for its own sustainably-grown food, renewable energy, and other basic needs, is a strong community, resilient in the face of challenge, whether the challenge comes in the form of hard economic times or a changing climate.
North Carolina is a beautiful, fertile, and abundant place, rich with agricultural land, knowledge of renewable energy, sustainable building, farming, and business practices; and replete with creative and hardworking people who can provide us with goods and services of every type. We don’t have to rely on goods and services brought in from elsewhere to eat well or to live fulfilling lives. We have everything we need to create a flourishing and interdependent community, right here at home.
We at Abundance want to spread the word about the importance of building sustainable, resilient communities, make it easier for people to shop locally and live more sustainably, support local innovators in sustainability, and bring people together to share ideas for building better communities.
Come take part in any of our many events or workshops, or browse through our online stories about what’s happening now around sustainability in N.C. You’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for, whether it’s meeting new friends, learning how to grow your own mushrooms or put solar panels on your house, or finding out about that new farm-to-table restaurant just down the street.
