• Organic School Garden
    A student gardening program teaches children from local schools about health, wellness and sustainability using the property’s greenhouse, cold frame and garden areas.

The Pocantico Center staff is committed to incorporating responsible environmental practices in all aspects of its operation. Green initiatives include renewable energy, through the purchase of 100 percent wind-generated electricity; the use of green cleaning products; a recycling program; and the option for towel and linen reuse. It is a goal to incorporate sustainable building practices in ongoing maintenance and capital improvement projects and food service strives to ensure sustainable seafood and locally grown food.

In addition, a portion of conference fees are used to acquire Green Tags (renewable energy certificates) from NativeEnergy to offset greenhouse gas emissions associated with conference attendees' travel to and from The Pocantico Center. This purchase will be dedicated to help finance new wind farm projects in the United States.
