To educate, advocate, and demonstrate sustainable ways of living in the Wet Mountain Valley.


Sustainable Ways advocates, educates and demonstrates sustainable living in the Wet Mountain Valley through projects, tours and workshops.  Sustainable behavior is promoted in areas of healthy food production, recycling, renewable energy, protection of natural resources and other earth-friendly choices.

Sustainable Ways serves as the parent organization for the Cliffs’ Park Community Garden and High Country Recycling, and sponsors activities throughout the year such as the Alternative Energy House Tour and Sustainability Workshops..

Sustainable Ways collaborates with other community organizations including the Custer County School District, Altitude Community Fitness, the High Altitude Garden Club, Westcliffe Seed Lending Library, Westcliffe Farmers’ Market, San Isabel Land Trust, Trails for All, and the CSU Extension Office to support their missions.  Partnerships with these and other local non-profits benefit the public and create stronger ties within the community.

All are welcome to participate in our efforts to advocate, educate and demonstrate sustainable ways of living.  Sustainable Ways is good for you and good for the Valley.
