Our Mission

MEarth educates and inspires through environmental stewardship.

Our experiential, educational programs aim to encourage youth and adults alike to become better stewards of our selves, our communities, and our environment. At the ten-acre Hilton Bialek Habitat in Carmel Valley, California, we provide hands-on, expansive learning opportunities to schools, county agencies, partner nonprofits, local businesses, and interested citizens throughout Monterey County. This nationally recognized outdoor learning center includes extensive grasslands, bird habitat, monarch butterfly habitat, a pond, an outdoor amphitheater, a LEED-certified culinary classroom, outdoor kitchen with wood-fired oven, organic vegetable and herb gardens, heirloom fruit orchard, off-grid solar greenhouse, and native plant nursery.

    MEarth's Organic Garden

    We are growing food to feed our community!

    Organic Garden

    In direct response to the current crisis, the past few weeks at MEarth have been devoted to a multi-phase project to rehabilitate our one-acre organic garden to grow an abundance of vegetables for families in need.
    Now, our edible garden’s production is more bountiful than ever. We are grateful for the abundance of support from community volunteers who have helped us reach this huge milestone with our first big harvest. We are still in need of support to fund our garden development and produce donations to the community. If you feel inspired to help, please click the button below!
