The Kerr-Cole Sustainable
Living Center site has been the personal property and residence of
Barbara Kerr for over 3 decades. Over this period the home and grounds have been
generally accessible to the public for tours, demonstrations, classes,
collaborations, internships and the like. We have formed an Arizona
private, non- profit corporation of the same name. This was done with
three main aims. First: to protect the premises and the
techniques embodied at the Center from undesirable future development.
To this end, legal machinery has been put in place to have the land,
structures and other physical assets of the Center eventually pass to
the ownership of the Corporation. Second: to form a research and
educational organization that will continue to exist in the future and
to grow along the path Barbara has set out upon. Thus the wisdom and the
knowledge gained here can continue to be made available to as wide an
audience as practical. Also the research, testing and design programs
can be sustained and expanded.
Third: the Center as a legal entity also conducts the business of the
organization regarding educational outreach and the sales of
publications, solar cookers and related items.
