THANK YOU for contributing to our Indiegogo Campaign! We exceeded our goal. Thanks for your support!

Community Garden

Working with ADCG, CEBE completed the first of it's four Indiegogo Campaign projects by building and installing a solar power station for gardeners to plug into to pump water for irrigation, run power tools and light the barn and tool shed. This has already helped make work on the site easier, which will help make the garden grow.

Registration is Open!

Less Dassler from WFLT talks about the sugar house and how it will work on Roberts Farm. By supporting CEBE, you supported Roberts Farm.  We will begin teaching people how to build timber frames from October 4th–19th, 2014 at Roberts Farm. Join us!

This sneak peak, rough cut video gives insight into the fossil fuel dilemma that we now find ourselves in. John has some ideas on how to start turning it around. We're launching CEBE Solar with John and will start the production of solar carts for farms, starting with Pietree Orchard.


Resilient Communities Restoring the Earth

Help Us Build a Local Movement

Whether we choose to or not, Western Maine will eventually become part of a post-fossil fuel economy faced with the challenges of an increasingly unstable climate. We can, however choose to plan now, while resources are available, to transition to a more resilient and ecology based economy that provides for our perennial needs and celebrates the strength of our communities.


Join the Center for an Ecology-Based Economy to realize the dream of healthy, sustainable communities and achieve greater resilience to climate and resource instability. Only by working together and celebrating our diversity and collective knowledge, will we realize our greatest potential as a community and thrive well into the future.



To engage the community in developing practical, ecological solutions to perennial needs. We offer resources and education in the areas of food, shelter, energy, and transportation.


Our goal is local community sustainability, health, and resilience in response to climate instability and resource depletion.
