Sustainable Fairfax supports the philosophy that we must attend to the needs of the present without sacrificing the ability of future generations and the natural world to provide for their own needs. We are a nonprofit educational organization providing the infrastructure for all age groups in our community to work together to regenerate and preserve the social, economic and environmental well-being of Fairfax and its’ sphere of influence.
Sustainable Fairfax’s vision is:
To maintain our Sustainability Center and Sustainable Backyard as a volunteer staffed community resource for sustainable demonstration, information, resources and goods.
To continue providing Community Education events that support the local economy, teach sustainable environmental practices and build community.
To train Volunteers to integrate sustainable practices into our community and act as a Project coordinators.
Provide information and resources to inspire citizens to take action on issues such as Climate Change, Toxics, Zero Waste, Food, Water and other sustainability topics.
