How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We view our future facility as a prototype for a new civic venue.  A place where nature and those who work for the good of the community will be the focus.  An attractive place, with multi-use functions, that will be particularly valuable in the north tier of the country as a winter garden and nature-oriented  gathering place.  Our design focuses on personal rejuvenation, alternating between quiet times and group and community activities, health and wellness, vertical integration of age groups, environmental education and enhancing life satisfaction of individuals and the local community.
