Who We Are
The Sustainable Living Coalition is a 501c3 non-profit operated by a board of dedicated community members in Fairfield Iowa who have come together to promote sustainable living practices in our region.
Our focus is on building our local food system and regenerative agriculture practices, promoting the adoption of renewable energy, tackling the challenge of food insecurity, and becoming a physical hub of education and community engagement at our Sustainable Education and Enterprise Design Center campus Eco Barn Event Center.
The Eco Barn is a straw bale event center melding sustainable energy, water, and waste systems with refined, rustic charm.
Eco Barn Rental
The Eco Barn and grounds are available for private and organizational events, classes, celebrations, activities or courses.
Our Eco Barn features many advanced energy features, some of which come from traditional methods, others from modern technology. Great care was taken to create a building that is functional, beautiful and harmonious with its environment.
