About Us

The Bancroft Center for Sustainability is a teaching site, a garden, a food forest and more. We are interested in promoting all skills and attitudes helpful to live in community and to protect our Mother Earth. Classes and activities include, but are not limited to: gardening, permaculture, canning and other preserving, yoga, cheese making, compost, food swaps, community picnics and pot lucks – the sky is the limit. Join us for a class, for some time to get your hands in the soil or just for a quiet moment in the garden.

We are located at 3845 Spring Dr, Spring Valley, CA 91977. Its the old Spring Valley Elementary School and now serves as the Spring Valley, East County Community Center.
