The Kerr-Cole Sustainable Living Center was created by Barbara Kerr and Sherry Cole. The Center envisions a future where humans live sustainably and in harmony with the natural world in a fashion that fosters social and economic justice. We believe the path to a meaningful and enriching life can and should be built on processes that will secure the foundations of our civilizations in the millennia to come. Our mission is to educate individuals and families to integrate sustainable living methods into their lives. Our focus is on: solar cooking and food drying; renewable energy; organic gardening; and other technologies and practices relating to the home environment. The center is committed to on-going research, development and testing of these methods, and to the sharing of this knowledge locally and globally. We demonstrate that living responsibly goes hand-in-hand with a physically and spiritually fulfilling lifestyle.

Group Tours, Seminars and Private Tutorials
You can have a general tour of the Sustainable Home, or we can focus on a particular interest. 1 to 6 persons, 2-hour session; $5 per person. School field trips can be negotiated.
Overnight stays are possibile: guests provide their own food, vehicle, tent, sleeping bag, personal equipment, etc. A motel is three miles away. Meals are often shared and evenings spent together. In the past the on-site living spaces were available for longer term residency and internships, but the availability of these options can no longer be guaranteed.
You can rent a car in Phoenix or take the White Mountain Bus Line to Show Low. By prior arrangement, we will pick up and return to Show Low.
