Part of understanding the road to health and wellness is recognizing our connection to our food sources and the Earth. Sustainable Living Classes occur at the Symbiosis Ranch, a biodynamic and organic farm just outside of Mount Pleasant. We offer a wide variety of classes geared toward introducing people to sustainable living and maintaining that lifestyle.

The NCC proudly presents a series of sustainable living classes dedicated to improving natural lifestyles. Learn through unique, hands-on experiences at the beautiful Symbiosis Ranch. Classes are limited to 15 students. Register early to save your spot.
