White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence since 1996, exists to foster a way of living that recognizes the interdependence of all creation. Grounded in an understanding of Providence Spirituality as hope and healing, the center offers leadership and education in the preservation, restoration and reverent use of all natural resources.

The center provides opportunities for many persons to participate in creating systems that support justice and sustainability, locally and globally. Through organic agriculture, eco-justice education and social advocacy, White Violet Center strives to promote an awareness and way of living which support all life.

At White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, you’ll find a herd of alpacas, 343 acres of state certified organic farmland, bees, a berry patch, a water garden, a bluebird trail spring through fall, and classified forest.

Many groups and clubs such as garden clubs, 4-H, scout troops, women’s auxiliaries, college students, homeschooling families and women and men religious enjoy touring the center.
