Announcing the creation of a new Hampton Bays non-profit!

Advocacy, Education, Praxis • The Good Ground Restoration Project

Restore the best practices of the past and advance the most regenerative principles of our time.

Founded by Dr. Marc Fasanella in January of 2016 the Ecological Culture Initiative is a local non-profit that develops environmental programing and field projects in collaboration with community groups, cultural institutions and government. Operating out of the historic Foster House in the Hamlet of Hampton Bays, NY, ECI seeks to build upon the insightful protection of an 1858 farmhouse home and its surrounding property through landmark status and conservation easements and develop permaculture based pilot projects throughout the community.
