The Ecology Center

There is a gem right here in Orange County, California that not many people know about. Every Tuesday I spend a couple hours volunteering at The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano.  This is a wonderful place to spend time with your children or a loved one.  The Ecology Center provides interactive education for all ages; a speaker series Basic Needs, Backyard Skills, children’s cooking classes and organic gardening.

I am there to help in anyway I can; one day sweeping the porch, the next day pruning some bushes.  It is a pleasure for me to be able to give my time and volunteer. I have worked as an office manager, principle, and administrative assistant and most of the offices I was in did not have windows in my work area or any connection with the environment.  Now I am so happy to have this opportunity to be outside and at the same time help others.

The staff and volunteers are all very nice and passionate about being “part of the solution”.  Evan Marks is the founder of The Ecology Center and his passion is to create greater awareness of basic needs food, water and shelter in a sustainable manner both locally and globally. The Center is a nonprofit 501(c)3 and is funded by donations and supporters. Plan a day  as part of your summer vacation to see The Ecology Center and enjoy the garden, the farm and the store – you’ll be glad you did.
