Envirovillage was founded in July of 2012 by Kirstin Walter. After doing some research about global warming, Kirsti decided to do her part by starting a nonprofit organization focused on environmental education and social responsibility. After organizing two youth led projects, as well as taking youth on outdoor adventures and participating in community events, the organization applied for its tax-exempt status.
In December of 2013, Envirovillage received its 501c3. Since that time, Envirovillage has organized a youth led community garden project and taken urban youth on hikes in Oregon and is currently in the process of helping coordinate a solar workshop and installation project in Lobitos, Peru. Envirovillage continues to work towards the goal of acquiring land to start the development of the Envirovillage Education Center.
