Omega Center for Sustainable Living

Regenerative Thinking and Design

The Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OCSL) demonstrates and teaches what is possible through regenerative thinking and design. Our award-winning building, Eco-Machine, community organizing, and innovative educational programs offer visitors and students a path toward a sustainable, just, resilient, and regenerative future. We envision a world where all people can awaken their full human potential while caring for each other and the Earth.

Now more than ever, we need each other

We are working hard to find new ways to be a source of wisdom and inspiration for our community in the wake of COVID-19 and the resulting shortened Omega season. With your support, we can develop new online offerings from OSCL teachers and staff, and continue to forge a path toward a more sustainable, regenerative future.
