Welcome to Long Branch!
For conserving and growing a sustainable future!
The Long Branch Environmental Education Center is a small educational institution located (map) in Buncombe County's Newfound Mountains, about 18 miles northwest of Asheville, North Carolina. Set aside in 1974 as an ecological sanctuary and land trust, it has developed into an educational center for sharing positive strategies of local self-reliance in the areas of environmental design, organic food production, renewable energy, shelter design and construction, appropriate technology, resource conservation, recycling, wildlife protection and improved environmental quality. Our organically grown Heritage Variety Red Raspberries and Blueberries are coming in by the buck and gallons, so all of you who would like to come out and pick are now formally invited!
