Little about us

The Mavis Institute Co-Op is a year round non-profit farm, permaculture lab and education center located in small hamlet of Flat Top, on the grounds of Mavis Manor in Mercer County WV. 

We believe quality education is a key in creating a sustainable future. Our permaculture training and the shared resources, which include access to land, will help provide the opportunities to reshape communities.

Our programs give folks access to the skill set of growing their own food, take step towards self-reliant, start or grow farm based businesses. We offer hands-on apprenticeship and mentorship, workshops, and other out reach programs.

Together we can be the change we wish to see in the world.

Please Consider a Donation

With your help we can continue to be the change we want to see.

  • It's in our GARDENS, where we begin to understand NATURE.
  • “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
    Mark Twain
  • "A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
