Seneca Treehouse Project: Creating a Sustainable Community and Learning Center

Teaching sustainable living

The Problem

After the world recession that began in 2008, Scott Bunn - the founder of the Seneca Treehouse Project - began noticing that his network of friends were suffering in a number of ways. They began falling behind on their mortgage payments and they began losing access to healthy food.

The Solution

The Seneca Treehouse project in South Carolina is a learning center teaching children, youth, and their families how to reduce their personal carbon footprint and live sustainably. They are currently developing three prototypes of low-impact housing that they can share with the local community. They're aiming to reach a net-zero energy production goal within the next two to three years.
