Nestled in Pine River, MN between pines and travel thorough-fares, the Hunt Utilities Resilient Living Campus is home to multiple organizations, demonstrations, and in-process experiments in the art and science of sustainable and resilient living. On Campus you'll find Happy Dancing Turtle, a nonprofit focused on growing good stewards, Hunt Utilities Group, a research and development corporation striving to make structures, systems, and tools for resilient lifestyles, and Garden Circles, the resource for reasonable raised garden beds. In addition to these organizations, the Campus hosts exciting building demonstrations, beautiful and productive gardens, and some of the best people around!

On nearly 2 acres, we endeavor to grow and learn with, through, and alongside the plants and soil.
