The Northeast Earth Coalition


The Northeast Earth Coalition, Inc, (NEEC) works at the community level to protect the environment and promote local sustainability and food security.

The NEEC supports the work of community and environmental activists who give hope for a better future.


We believe that a strong local food system contributes to the health of our entire community, and we will work to facilitate greater understanding of the social, economic, & environmental impacts of our food choices.
